Joy In My Morning

With words and music by Peter Gagnon, “Joy in My Morning” is based on James 1:17, Psalms 4:7 and 118:14, this song has been an encouragement to my heart. It’s published by Sovereign Grace Ministries. It’s on the “Come, Weary Saints” and can be purchased here. Or you can download the lyrics and guitar chords for free here or the lead sheet for free here.

Recently, one of my friends posted her facebook status as “new mercies and fresh dark roast coffee. I guess it must be morning.” Truly, the Lord’s mercies are new every morning and His faithfulness is great, just as Lamentations 3 tells us. One of His many mercies to us each morning is joy! Enjoy this song as you meditate on His unchanging love and faithfulness providing joy for us.

Verse 1:

“When darkness falls, temptations call, and all around me seems undone,
You hear my pleas, supply my needs, and tell me of Your wondrous love.

Chorus:

“You are the joy in my morning,
You’re my song of praise,
Just like the new day dawning,
flooding my world with grace.

Verse 2:

“Though trials come and every one can take me further from Your truth,
You calm my fears, dry all my tears, and draw me closer, Lord, to You.

Chorus:

“You are the joy in my morning,
You’re my song of praise,
Just like the new day dawning,
flooding my world with grace.

Verse 3:

“In You there’s no shadow of turning, constant in all Your ways.
You’re growing my faith and I’m learning to lean on You all of my days.

Chorus:

“You are the joy in my morning,
You’re my song of praise,
Just like the new day dawning,
flooding my world with grace.”
