About Joy

"Joy In My Heart," sometimes titled "I've Got the Joy, Joy, Joy" is a popular Christian song often sung around the campfire and during scouting events. It is often included in Gospel music and a cappella concerts, songbooks, and Christian children's songbooks. The song was written by George William Cooke. Cooke was born in Yorkshire, England in 1884 and died in Jamestown, New York in 1951. He was the author of "Joy in My Heart" which was copyrighted in 1925 (but not renewed). At that time he was living in Wilmington, Delaware. He was a minister and associated with a group called Gospel Crusaders which was associated with the Methodist Church. He ran the Delmarva Camp, a Methodist camp that held gospel meetings and revivals. He was later minister of Methodist churches in Buffalo and Rochester New York. As a young man, he twice circled the globe in evangelistic tours with Commissioner Samuel L. Brengle of the Salvation Army.

I never meant to make you cry
A fool I was, I never meant to say goodbye
Can't you feel the pressure drop?
Can't you feel the pressure's off?

Heaven's here in front of me
I can't breath and I can't see
Baby, I never realized.....
As the days and the nights roll on

I've prayed for this moment since the day I was born
Nut, oh god, baby I never realized
The joy 'till the joy was gone
I know I'm wrong, I know I was so blind

But worst of all, I saw the tears, I saw you cry
Can't you feel the pressure drop?
Can't you see the pressure's off?
Heaven's here in front of me

I can't breath and I can't speak
Baby I never realized.....
And you can build walls to surround you
But I'll tear down this world 'till I've found you

You're the treasure, believe me, I need you
Come home.....
As the days and the nights roll on
I've prayed for this moment since the day I was born

Nut, oh god, baby I never realized
The joy 'till the joy was gone
And as time rolls on
I've been fighting since the day I was born

But, oh god, baby I never realized
The joy 'til the joy was gone
Hold on, hold on, hold on

Joy (in my sense) has indeed one characteristic, and one only, in common with them; the fact that anyone who has experienced it will want it again... I doubt whether anyone who has tasted it would ever, if both were in his power, exchange it for all the pleasures in the world. But then Joy is never in our power and Pleasure often is."The causes of joy have been ascribed to various sources. “When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow t… more »
