 Power of Joy
No one can take your joy away
Grounded in Christ day by day
In our times of sorrow and grief
He will bring comfort and relief

Joy is still a choice that we make
Not from circumstances at stake
The Spirit transforms us inside
With spiritual insight, He guides

By realizing the power of His name
Joy will replace our guilt and shame
By telling the disciples to take heart
It was encouragement on His part

Knowing God and His great love
Brings renewed joy from above
God reveals to us His divine plan
Love with no boundaries to man

Realizing Jesus has won the victory
Because He lives, we share His glory
By the Spirit, joy as an overcomer
Satan is not our master any longer

We can have full measure of His joy
By the fruits of the Spirit we enjoy
His Word declares to rejoice always
Command to follow all of our days

We can have joy in an evil world
By the Spirit and trusting His word
In trials, there is no reason to fear
They will end, as His return is near

John 16:33 (NIV)
I have told you these things, so that in me you may
have peace. In this world you will have trouble.
But take heart! I have overcome the world.
