He Gives Me Joy

This song has been running through my mind. Just hearing it takes me back to the side of my Mom's grave where my sister had copies of it passed amongst the crowd so we could surprise my dad and sing it because she knew it was a favorite of his. It speaks to me of my Dad's unshakeable Faith in a God who is Good no matter what. And it speaks to me of the beauty for ashes that God promises to bring.......


He gives me Joy --- Joy --- Joy
He gives me Peace --- Peace --- Peace
I sing His praise and a hundred
Million angels start singing.
He talks to me and the freedom bells
Of my soul start to ringing.
He gives me Joy
In the morning.
And gentle Peace
In the evening.
I sing His praise and all Heaven
Plays a sweet orchestration.
He speaks to me and my heart strings
Play a song of jubilation.
He gives me Joy
In the morning.
And gentle Peace
In the evening.
He gives me Joy like I never knew,
He's been my friend,
He is always true.
He's been my strength,
He helps me make it through,
He gives me Joy.
He gives me Joy
In the morning.
And gentle Peace
In the evening.
He gives me Joy --- Joy --- Joy
He gives me Peace --- Peace --- Peace
He gives me Joy.
