How can I help but be joyful,
with the Son rising up in my heart?
How can I help but sing boldly,
with the sun casting out all that’s dark?
With peace welling up like a fountain,
and joy flowing forth as a river;
God’s Kingdom’s descending from heaven,
and my mind sees a glimpse of forever.
Could angels sing praises more fully,
than we who have suffered through pains,
who marched ever onward in sorrows,
finding victory and eternity’s gains?
Join me in praises forever,
to our King and Creator, Amen!
Join Him in all of His glory,
as He raises us free from our sin.
The Spirit empowers us to love Him,
to live with Him fully each day.
Please embrace this power you’ve been given,
don’t squander or give it away.
How can we help but be joyful,
as Christ wipes away all of our tears?
How can we help but sing boldly,
as He fills us more fully each year?
