LYRICS

I Still Have Joy
by Danny Mccrimmon, Joseph Calvin Jackson

CHORUS
I still have joy, I still have joy,
After all the things I’ve been through
I still have joy.
I still have joy, I still have joy,
After all the things I’ve been through
I still have joy.

There are times in my life when I felt I couldn’t go on
But the Lord He blessed me  and he made me strong
I kept the faith and I held on through the night
This is my testimony, he’ll make every thing all right

I get joy when I think about all he’s done for me
He even broke the habits trying to conquer me
I spoke to the mountain and it ran down to the sea
I can’ began to tell you what He’s done for me.
