Joy

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity,
faithfulness, gentleness and self-control
(Galatians 5:22-3; NRSV).

1. Lord,
May I do everything
With joy,
So others glimpse
Your earthly paradise.

2. Lord,
May I do everything
With faith,
So others comprehend
Your sacrifice.

3. Lord,
May I do everything
With love,
So others understand
That you are near.

4. Lord,
May I do everything
With prayer,
So others grasp
That you are always here.
