Christ our joy and strength

God graciously gave me this beautiful song. When looking at what is going on around us, we know we are still standing because “Christ is our joy and strength.”  I don’t know how to explain how awful Cholera is, or how sad it is to watch people die, or how tragic it is when all they need is re-hydration.

 

We were pressed on every side

Full of fear and troubled thoughts

For good reason we carried heavy hearts

 

It is good to come together

In a friendship to remember

All the reasons hope is in our hearts

 

Halleluiah, Halleluiah, Halleluiah

Christ our joy and strength

Halleluiah, Halleluiah, Halleluiah

Christ our joy and strength

 

Now with patience in our suffering

Perseverance in our prayers

With good reason this hope is in our hearts

 

Halleluiah, Halleluiah, Halleluiah

Christ our joy and strength

Halleluiah, Halleluiah, Halleluiah

Christ our joy and strength

 

Oh we saw the face of angels

Many good things well secured

For good reason this joy is in our hearts

 

Halleluiah, Halleluiah, Halleluiah

Christ our joy and strength

Halleluiah, Halleluiah, Halleluiah

Christ our joy and strength

 

For good reason joy is in our hearts

  1. Hi all, I just sent this song to Brandon and Jessica, and if you’ve never heard it before … take time to listen:

    This is one of those songs, that comes floating into your head when things are getting a little difficult. It is appropriate for Brandon and Jessica, and perhaps some of you also. Since it did not come up as a hyperlink, block and copy it, and paste it into your search engine, and it will come up with words and music.
    Unfortunately, the current popular 7/11 songs being sung in most Churches today, will not be floating thru your heads when you are our age. (75). We grew up singing hymns which were written by devout Christian pioneers, who lived what they preached, and put that belief into words and song.
    Our prayers go out to Brandon and Jessica and all the staff at NWHCM. What a task … may God wrap his loving arms around the entire bunch laboring in Haiti, and may Gods healing hand be stretched out to those masses of dying souls. We have it so good here in the States, that it’s hard to imagine the suffering those folks are going thru.
