OH JOY

Oh Joy, Oh Joy, I’m gonna sing me a happy song

Oh Joy, Oh Joy, my heart is glad and I am strong.

I feel good and happy in my soul

Heaven is the place I’m gonna go

Join me now let’s sing it together

Make no mind about the stormy weather.

OH JOY, OH JOY I’M GONNA SING ME A HAPPY SONG

OH JOY, OH JOY MY VOICE IS CLEAR AND STRONG

THERE’S NO LOAD TOO HEAVY TO HOLD

OH JOY, OH JOY, I’VE GOT JESUS IN MY SOUL.

Give me your hand and today we will pray,

I know the words we want to say,

There is peace and content within my heart

I found Jesus and I know where to start.

Our song is happy and comes from the heart.

We will keep singing until we depart.

(Chorus).

I’ve got to dance and I have to sing as I whirl.

I see a bright and different world.

The sun is shining and it’s raining too

I see a rainbow as it’s coming through.

I’m here to tell you again and again,

I found Jesus and he’s my good friend..

OH JOY, OH JOY, I’M GONNA SING ME A HAPPY SONG.

OH JOY, OH JOY, MY VOICE IS CLEAR AND STRONG

THERE’S NO LOAD TO HEAVY TO HOLD

OH JOY, OH JOY, I’VE GOT JESUS IN MY SOUL.
