Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: O joy that soars above my ways, In ev’ry song of praise. Borne high with rev’rent awe, To touch the hem of God.
Verse 2: My joy springs from humility, It’s held secure in trust. My joy grows strong in suff’ring, It’s kept in thankfulness.
Verse 3: O, quiet joy from knowing God; A precious inner peace, Reveals eternal glory, Where joy will never cease.
