THE JOY, by Carl Gooch

The Joy
We were so blind that we did not know,
Which way to turn or which way to go.
We wandered in our sins as dark as night,
But God showed mercy and sent His light.
He came to us in a stable humble and low,
And lived a life perfect that we could know,
The yoke now lifted, the chains are no more;
To the cross the burden of our sins He bore.
So bring on the music, the harp and lyre.
Let the praises of God be heard everywhere.
Sound loud the horns, and bang the gongs.
Let us all lift our voices and sing His songs.
Let our soul sing; sing out in His joy,
For His sweet love, no one can destroy.
Come we will celebrate all He has done.
Our strength is in the Joy of God’s Son.
He gave me mercy, He gave me love,
He is my salvation from God above.
He watches over me showing me the way,
He is my life. What more can I say?
And I will praise Him each and everyday.
