Flowing from heart to heart;
A river that brings life ;
Cleansing all life’s strife;
Lighting up lives where sadness was rife;
Throwing all worry to the wind;
Not bothering if it’ll ever come to an end;
Joy brings smiles to life.
The situation sounds bitter;
No hope for things getting better;
Every move seems to falter;
Yet to them who believe, out of their belly shall flow springs of living water;
Water that refreshes every parched land;
Water that brings life to sprouts springing up;
Water that cleanses all pain, leaving in its stead gain;
Joy brings new beginnings.
Whether happy or sad;
Good or bad;
Owing or paid;
Hungry or fed;
Clothed or naked;
Inside is a well that springs forth life;
A well whose waters never run dry;
Dependable in the world of difficulty;
Glimmer of hope in the darkest times;
Joy brings hope and life.
A hearty soul whether in a healthy body or not;
A spirit in tune with the Holiest of Holies;
A song sung from the oil of gladness;
A smile that awakens the dead;
A countenance that gives others hope;
Is the soul that possesses true joy
Joy is Spirit inspired.
