Joy sneaks in, disrupting my pain,
Causing my heart to refocus again,
Upon the One who broke pain’s power,
Helps me overcome and not to cower.
Joy runs in thumping victimhood,
The cruel lies are unveiled and understood,
Lifting my gaze, I am seated above,
Been made a victor by the Champion of Love.
Joy rushes in to dispel all fear,
Its power is broken over me right here,
More than a conqueror, I am now free,
To dance with joy through eternity.
So who is the author of this joy sublime?
Is it the One who is truly divine?
It is Jesus, the Champion and King!
He is the One of whose joy I sing!
