Composer’s Foreword:

One of the Hebrew words for joy is “שׂמחה” which when romanticized becomes śimchâh (phonetic spelling is sim-khaw') while one of the words for joy in Greek is “χαρά”, when romanticized is chara (phonetic spelling is khar-ah'). These words mean gladness, delight, rejoicing. It is more than spontaneous emotion and it is directly linked to God. Psa. 126:3).

Feasting and singing reveal a heart that is full of joy (Neh. 8:12; 1 Sam. 18:6; Psa. 137:3). The God given kind of joy to believers is a gift not associated with what happens because it is a deep sited pleasure in the heart of believers because he knows all is well between him and his father, the Lord Jesus. (Gal. 5:22; Acts 13:52; 1 Th. 1:6; 1 Jn 1:4; 2 Jn 1:12)

In tandem with the indescribable joy that fills the hearts of believers, I have composed this song to show that the joy of Christ is always the strength of the believers.

The tune used in the composition is recorded on YouTube, the link of which has been shared here. It is therefore the joy of the composer seeing believers join in singing this song…
