The Joy Of The Lord
by Paul Leaman


Ah, the joy of the Lord,
Who thus can understand?
That inner joy that comes
Resting in Godís hand!

That strong hand that holds us
Secure for evermore.
What more could one seek after,
Such a God to adore.

When trials and hardships come,
And weíre oft bowed-down sore.
Yet there, there is that joy,
That abides forevermore!

Ah, that inner joy and love,
That persist within the soul.
Itís God that placed it there,
When He truly makes one whole.

Can pain diminish that joy,
Or heartache, lessen it at-all?
Not of earth can take it away
For those who heed His call.

This joy is for believers,
In Christ alone is great joy.
Ah, but one must walk with Christ
Or the joy - they wonít enjoy!
