This is just about the saddest, most beautiful song in my world right now. Listen to the video- if you want to skip to the song rather than listen to the intro just forward it on to about 4 min in. I’ll let it speak for itself but believe me, you’ll never hear or sing I’ve got the Joy, Joy, Joy down in my heart in the same way again.
Someone once said to John Piper that he must be the happiest man in the world with his many books on joy and delight in God. He talks about how that in this broken world that just isn’t the case, his joy is no happy smiley joy but a wintery joy. I’m once again fighting for some of that kind of joy.
