Joy Is Found In You

By Peter Gringhuis, Elton Smith and Larry Holder

CCLI Number: 5511510

I was thinking about the passage in 1 Kings 19 where God appeared to Elijah the prophet. He was not in the wind, the earthquake, or the fire, but in a still small voice. Peter sent this music in a file named "joy". Joy is found in quiet places. - Elton, 5 May 2009

Accompaniment Track

(Verse 1)
Joy awaits me in the dawn
As I rise to sing my song
I will sing to You forever and forever

Overflowing from my heart
Every day a brand new start
It's Your loving grace that's put this song inside me

Joy is found
Joy is found in You
Joy is found
Joy is found in You

Joy is found in quiet places
In a life of sweet surrender
Knowing You are with me every day

(Verse 2)
From beginning to the end
You're my everlasting Friend
You're the one who brings a peace this world can't measure

You're the calm within the storm
You're the fire that keeps me warm
In your loving grace I find eternal treasure

Joy is found
Joy is found in You
Joy is found
Joy is found in You

(Repeat Chorus)
Joy is found in quiet places
In a life of sweet surrender
Knowing You are with me every day

(Second chorus - sing at the end)
Thank You for the joy of living
Thank You for Your grace forgiving
Thank You for Your presence every day
