Joy

Joy
(For the Joy set before Him)

Joy transcendent
Above our planet’s face
Transfixed it rises
Reaching upper space
Seeking its one true home.

Coming from a
Higher source
It is not satisfied
Until it has finished,
Run its committed course.

Promised in angel’s
Whispers
Sought by ancient
Prophets’ words
Looking to occur

In whomever will
Take the time
Learn to listen to
Heaven’s wishes
And smallest sighs.

A Savior exposed your
Greatest power
Enduring a cruel cross
To show your face
In his darkest hour

For your sake he
Endured a painful death
Making sure not one,
No single child
Would ever be left

Not seeing, not knowing
Your saving Grace.
For you, Joy, He
Remained on a path
of a criminal’s shame
yet transcending still
toward His Father’s Face.

  1. This is beautiful and uplifting. In these days it’s important to remember that “the joy of the Lord is our strength.” A great price was paid for us to walk in this precious, mighty joy, and I’m so grateful. Thank you for sharing, and Blessings!
