Let not the briars
root grow and thrive
so to strangle the joy
that makes you alive
Let not the caustic
toxins flow free
and take from your soul
the hope that can be
Let not the winds
topple your faith
and weaken you such
that your strength is displaced
Rejoice in the Lord
again let’s rejoice
Open our hearts
and lift up our voice
Seed the soul’s ground
with goodness and peace
tend to the garden
and fight the dis-ease
The joy of the Lord
is the strength that we seek
it vanquishes fear
and emboldens the weak
So come all who trust
in the one Lord of all
in the light of his glory
all struggles seem small
