Smiles



You ask me why I smile this way,
I really can't recall a reason why.
It's just that I'm so happy today;
I've got such joy inside.
Ever since I started givin' everything to my King,
All my life has been so blessed, 
Makes me wanna sing!

I really can't explain it, 
Sure can't describe it.
All I know to tell you is this--

The joy of the Lord is my strength,
He gave me beauty for the ashes I had worn,
He turned my mourning into dancing all around for joy!
Oh I guess, that this smile just might show 
What His love does for me!

They say the outside always shows
The things that are inside of your heart.
I pray that what Your are seein' 
Is the love of Christ abidin' in me.
He's changed my life so wonderf'ly,
Gave a song to my heart and 
Dance to my feet!

I Really Can't Explain it, 
Sure can't describe it.
All I know to tell you is this--

The joy of the Lord is my strength,
He gave me beauty for the ashes I had worn,
He turned my mourning into dancing all around for joy!
Oh I guess, that this smile just might show 
What His love does for me!

Oh I know, that this smile could never show
All His love means to me!

  1. 'A happy heart is good medicine, but a bitter spirit dry the bones'

    Can't recall where that is in Proverbs, but it is something a lot of us seem to have problems with.
    Having a happy heart is different from being 'happy', when your 'happy' it is a circumstance happiness, but a happy heart always sings, even in times of trouble and woe.
