   Joy in the LORD always 

 

Joy is not merely fun and laughter

Joy is not self-indulgent pleasure;

Something easily eradicated when circumstance changes

Joy in the LORD is our strength and hope forever;

Independent of circumstances.

                            

True JOY is the fruit of the Holy Spirit

It is the exultation of mind, emotion and soul;

Joy is not a worldly platitude,

But it is a feeling of exhilaration, infused with praise and gratitude,

For the Loving Saviour, Incarnate Man, who died for our sins

So we can be blessed with life eternal.

.

 

Joy in the LORD brings contentment

Trust in the LORD to work all things for our good;

He gives us the peace that surpasses understanding

HE is with us through all circumstances, not-withstanding;

In times of poverty or wealth

In sickness or health;

There is no restlessness,

Nothing can separate us from HIS loving-kindness,

Nor HIS generous compassion and forgiveness.

 

Rejoice in the LORD always

There is no better or greater companion

In life’s journey than the LORD? 

Who can be more magnanimous and  trustworthy ?

Joy in the LORD brings serenity;

GOD watches over us ceaselessly,

Like a strong,loving FATHER,

And a kind, nurturing MOTHER;

Omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent

Rejoice ,rejoice for the LORD is with us always.
