The Joy of the Lord is My Strength

The joy of the LORD is my strength.
The joy of the LORD is my strength.
The joy of the LORD is my strength.
Oh, the joy of the LORD is my strength.

He heals the broken-hearted and they cry no more.
He heals the broken-hearted and they cry no more.
He heals the broken-hearted and they cry no more.
The joy of the LORD is my strength!

He gives me living water and I thirst no more.
He gives me living water and I thirst no more.
He gives me living water and I thirst no more.
The joy of the LORD is my strength!

The joy of the LORD is my strength.
The joy of the LORD is my strength.
The joy of the LORD is my strength.
Oh, the joy of the LORD is my strength.

We Praise You, Creator

We praise You, Creator,
in earth, sea and sky,
our Ruler, our Maker,
our Sovereign most high.
Each new generation
lifts voices in praise:
how good Your creation,
how gracious Your ways!

Each springtime, the blossoms
bloom fragrant once more;
each summer, each autumn
brings forth its rich store.
With witness compelling
our praise and our prayer,
creation is telling
of Your faithful care.

Your wondrous works teach us,
Creator, to trace
the limitless reaches
of Your love and grace.
Your grace dwells among us,
Your love goes before;
from eldest to youngest,
we praise and adore.
