With A Song of Joy

With a Song of Joy
Bret Hesla © 1992

With a song of joy the buds shall break
With a song of joy the seeds shall wake
May their song of joy be the song that you sing in your heart.
With a song of joy the sea shall roar
With a song of joy the sky shall pour
My their song of joy be the song that you sing in your heart.

Chorus:
Joy will be the song
Joy will be the song
Joy will be the song in my heart.
Joy will be the song
Joy will be the song
Joy will be the song in my heart.

With a song of hope the sun will burn
With a song of hope the geese return
May their song of hope be the song that you sing in your heart.
With a song of hope the grain will swell
With a song of hope the kids will yell
May their song of hope be the song that you sing in your heart.
Hope will be the song

With a song of peace the wind will blow
With a song of peace the stream will flow
May their song of peace be the song that you sing in your heart.
With a song of peace the grass will bend
With a song of peace the wound will mend
May their song of peace be the song that you sing in your heart.
Peace will be the song

With a song of love the dads will play
With a song of love the field will sway
May their song of love be the song that you sing in your heart.
With a song of love the lilies bloom
With a song of love in the mother’s womb
May their song of love be the song that you sing in your heart.
Love will be the song

With a song of ease the snake will lie
With a song of ease the buzzards fly
May their song of ease be the song that you sing in your heart.
With a song of ease the dogs will sleep
With a song of ease the willows weep
May their song of ease be the song that you sing in your heart.
Ease will be the song

With a song of praise to the God of earth
With a song of praise to the God of birth
May their song of praise be the song that you sing in your heart.
With a song of praise to the God below
With a song of praise to the God of all
May their song of praise be the song that you sing in your heart.
Praise will be the song
