Joyful, Joyful…

Lord we adore Thee
The God of glory
The Lord of love

This song was running through my head today, as I was considering  writing this. Sometimes it is so easy to let the circumstances of life, block our view of reality. The reality that Jesus left the glory of heaven and chose me. The reality and mystery that the God who created the vast incredible universe chose to die so that I might have a relationship with the Father. The God of glory and the Lord of Love makes it possible for you and me to have Joy. A joy that is the result of His love and healing in my life.

Today I am grateful for…

  • Ears to hear the wind blowing the trees on a cold crisp morning
  • Eyes to see a sunset where the white fluffy clouds turns shades of pink and purple against a brilliant blue sky
  • Hugs
  • the God of glory, Lord of love

And here are the rest of the words to the song

Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee Lyrics

Words by Henry van Dyke
Music by Ludwig van Beethoven

Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee
God of glory, Lord of love
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee
Opening to the sun above
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness
Drive the dark of doubt away
Giver of immortal gladness
Fill us with the light of day
All Thy works with joy surround Thee
