A Song - Jesus Gives Me Joy

Author:

Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days

a-song-jesus-gives-me-joy

Composer's Foreword

The joy that the world gives does not last long but the joy the Lord gives through Jesus lasts us through this earth and in the world to come we shall have always joy before him.

Having been enjoying the joy of the Lord, it crosses my mind to put some words into songs about this special joy, the joy of the Lord that comes through Jesus Christ.

It is my sincere belief that if anyone has enjoyed this joy, such a one will like the wordings of this composition and would want to sing this song.

To make the singing of this song easy, I have prerecorded the tune used on YouTube and have shared the link here for convenience sake.

Thank you.

Composed Song

Chorus

Joy/6x

Jesus gives me joy


Leader/Solo

Kind of joy that Jesus gives

None on earth

Could give such joy

Chorus


Leader

When young I have thought

Acquiring wealth

W'ld sure give me joy

Chorus


Leader

Fulfilments 'll surely come

Through college certificates

My friends have said (But No)

Chorus


Leader

People have said

Getting a spouse will surely

Give me joy I want

Chorus


Leader

Getting married, getting children

Though very good

But they don't give lasting joy

Chorus


Leader

Possessing wealth acquiring certificates

Yea they are good

Yet they don't give lasting joy

Chorus


Leader

Only God through his son

Lord Jesus gives

Everlasting joy

Chorus


Leader

This joy the Lord's joy

It's my inner

Strength

Chorus


Leader

I 'll always rejoice in him

Yea I 'll alway'

R'joice in the Lord

Chorus


Leader

He has shown me

The path of life

In his presence I'm 'verwhealmed with his joy

Chorus
