Joy From Within

Joy visits few
Barring hope from their heart
A pessimist view
Doubts success from the start

Of days here on earth
We are granted so few
Let us find joy
In all that is true

In a hand that we hold
In friendships that last
In memories of old
Regarding those passed
In the miracle of birth
Or the flight of a bird
In realizing the worth
Of sharing a kind word
For food gracing our table
And the sun rising each morn
For a body willing and able
To assist the forlorn

From hope eternally granted
I derive these blessed joys
From my heart divinely planted
Comes forth a joyful noise
