O God, My Joy

Paul Keew and Brian Pinner have collaborated on a wonderful song that has been a spiritual encouragement to me.  I find myself regularly rehearsing this song in my mind. 

O God, My Joy

O God, my joy, You reign above in radiant splendor and beauty.

Your Word has drawn my heart to love the awesome sight of Your glory.

Your blazing Light and gospel grace shine brightly from my Savior’s face.

No other wonder would I see than Christ enthroned in His glory!

Sustained by joy in trial and pain, I trust Your wisdom and mercy.

Through suff’ring that Your love ordains, more like Your Son You will make me.

For Christ embraced the cross of shame, beholding glorious joys to come.

O give me faith like His to see that suff’ring lifts me to glory!

Compelled by joy, I fight the sin that turns my gaze from Your glory. 

Your Holy Spirit dwells within; His presence arms me for vict’ry.

Let death and hell against me rise; through death I’ll gain eternal joys.

All pow’rs of hell will bend the knee before my great King of Glory! 

You can hear this song here.
