Joy Lyrics

Lately I’ve been reeling
Watching the nightly news
Don’t seem to find the rhythm
Just wanna sing the blues
Feels like a song that never stops
Feels like it’s never gonna

Gotta get that fire, fire back in my bones
Before my hard heart turns into stone
So won’t somebody please pass the megaphone
I’ll shout it on the count of three, 1, 2, 3

Oh, hear my prayer tonight
I’m singing to the sky
Give me strength to raise my voice, let me testify
Oh, hear my prayer tonight
Cause this is do or die
The time has come to make choice
And I choose joy
Let it move you
Let it move
Let it move you
Yeah, I choose joy
Let it move you
Let it move
Let it move you

Yeah, back when I was younger
My eyes were full of life
But now that I am older
I live at the speed of light
Feels like the cycle never stops
Feels like it’s never gonna

Gotta get that fire, fire back in my bones
Before my hard heart turns into stone
So won’t somebody please pass the megaphone
I’ll shout it on the count of three, 1, 2, 3

Oh, hear my prayer tonight
I’m singing to the sky
Give me strength to raise my voice, let me testify
Oh, hear my prayer tonight
Cause this is do or die
The time has come to make choice
And I choose joy
Let it move you
Let it move
Let it move you
Yeah, I choose joy
Let it move you
Let it move
Let it move you

Though I walk through the valley in the shadow of night
Oh with You by my side, I’m stepping into the light
I choose Joy
Let it move you
Let it move
Let it move you

I need that joy, joy, joy, joy, down in my heart
Down in my heart to stay
I need that joy, joy, joy, joy, down in my heart
Down in my heart to stay

But I choose joy
Let it move you
Let it move
Let it move you
Oh, I choose joy
Let it move you
Let it move
Let it move you

Though I walk through the valley in the shadow of night
Oh with You by my side, I’m stepping into the light
I choose Joy
Go let it move you
Go let it move
Go let it move you
Oh, I choose joy

Joy, joy, joy, joy, down in my heart
Down in my heart to stay
I need that joy, joy, joy, joy, down in my heart
Down in my heart to stay

One story about "Joy"

  • Cindy says:

    I love this song and the message. It is great as we really can choose to focus on the negative media and evil portrayed. Or, we can choose to focus on all we are in and through Jesus. This song helped bring this heart for me.
