I'VE DISCOVERED THE WAY OF GLADNESS

VERSE 1:
D
Mankind is searching everyday
   A                  D
In quest of something new;
                     Em7
But I have found the living way,
    E7                A     A7
The path of pleasures true.

CHORUS:
A7       D
I've dis-covered the way of gladness,
                           A7
I've discovered the way of joy,
                            Em
I've discovered relief from sadness,
       G              A      D
'Tis a happiness with-out al-loy;

I've discovered the fount of blessing,
                          G
I've discoverd the Living Word;
                              D     E7
'Twas the greatest of all dis-cover-ies
             A7       D
When I found Jesus my Lord.

VERSE 2:
I've found the pearl of greatest price,
Eternal life so fair;
'Twas through the Savior's sacrifice,
I found this jewel rare.

(REPEAT CHORUS)
