This entry is part 10 of 11 in the series Song of the Week

The Lord provides us with pure joy. Nothing else in life can provide pure joy as God does. When you feel this, you want nothing more than to be with God. God is pure love and pure joy. Don’t let anyone take your joy away! God is light. This light leads to joy. Proof of this is the sunlight. Sunlight instantly brings joy to us after a long winter. God is light!

I love the part of the song that says, “While there’s breath in my lungs, I will praise you Lord.” I will always praise Him for all things! God doesn’t bring darkness. God only brings light! So no matter what darkness is happening in our life, we will continue to praise Him and HIS LIGHT WILL SHINE OVER ALL DARKNESS!!! The darkness has no chance against the light of God.

I hope you enjoy this song as much as I do:

Here are the lyrics to the song so you can follow along:

Though the tears may fall my song will rise
My song will rise to You
Though my heart may fail my song will rise
My song will rise to You
While there’s breath in my lungs
I will praise you Lord

In the dead of night I’ll lift my eyes
I’ll lift my eyes to You
Though the waters rise I’ll lift my eyes
I’ll lift my eyes to You
While there’s hope in this heart
I will praise You Lord

The joy of the Lord is my strength
The joy of the Lord is my strength
In the darkness I’ll dance
In the shadows I’ll sing
The joy of the Lord is my strength

When I cannot see You with my eyes
Let faith arise to You
When I cannot feel Your hand in mine
Let faith arise to You
God of mercy and love
I will praise You Lord

How You shine with glory Lord of light
I feel alive with You
In Your presence now I come alive
I am alive with You
There is strength when I say
I will praise You Lord

The joy of the Lord is my strength
The joy of the Lord is my strength
In the darkness I’ll dance
In the shadows I’ll sing
The joy of the Lord is my strength

When sorrow comes my way
You are the shield around me
Always You remain
My courage in the fight

I hear You call my name
Jesus I am coming
Walking on the waves
Reaching for Your light

The joy of the Lord is my strength
The joy of the Lord is my strength
In the darkness I’ll dance
In the shadows I’ll sing
The joy of the Lord is my strength
