The Third Sunday of Advent: Joy

Who are you? What do you have to say for yourself?

In my God is the joy of my soul,
a jewel beyond all price,
because He only was with me in all my sorrows,
a warmth that has brought me to this day

through the times
when I could not speak my sadness
and no one would believe

when rejoicing in the Lord was a burden
because my soul could not be stirred,
weighed down and blind to hope.

He moved my hands to hold onto only His love
so that all other worries and troubles slipped out
and my fingers formed around His heart.

He it was that made me see only His love
until not another thought was in my head
and I could walk with Him in peace
