Joy


I have Joy
Joy in pain
Joy in sadness
Joy in discouragement

I have Joy
The Joy that comes from within
Innate with that of Christ
The Joy to do His will

I' ve got Joy
The Joy of Christ
Which eludes Him
When He finds a lost soul

I have Joy
An aftermath of obedience
Which is seen in salvation
Joy in God’s law

I have Joy
Joy in tribulations
Joy through tough times
Joy in various trials

I have Joy
The Joy that lasts
Though I might be visibly shaken
The Joy of salvation

What type of Joy?
That is the Joy of Jesus
The Joy that sustains
Though there are troubles
The Joy of peace
It is the Joy of salvation.

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
