WHEN JOY CAME A-CALLING (The Song of a Happy Heart)

Big heart shape

Chorus
Oh! When joy came a-calling
’Twas such a beautiful day
’Cause my heart’s joy had left me
Now it’s back and here to stay

This happy heart rejoices
This happy heart, it sings
This happy heart remembers
The joy-bells that it rings

Chorus
Oh! When joy came a-calling
’Twas such a beautiful day
’Cause my heart’s joy had left me
Now it’s back and here to stay

This happy heart releases
This happy heart, it brings
This happy heart renounces
Blueness no longer clings

Chorus
Oh! When joy came a-calling
’Twas such a beautiful day
’Cause my heart’s joy had left me
Now it’s back and here to stay

This happy heart’s reclining
This happy heart, it springs
This happy heart reconciles
With the heart of my King’s

Bridge
Joy, it leaves
Sometimes for a season
Then it returns
And brings with it
Love and peace and healing
Yes, sweet love and peace and healing

This happy heart reconfirms
This happy heart has wings
This happy heart reaffirms
This happy, happy heart

Chorus
Oh! When joy came a-calling
’Twas such a beautiful day
’Cause my heart’s joy had left me
Now it’s back and here to stay

  1. Beautiful. Yes, sometimes joy leaves for a season, but it’s our choice to exercise joy, a fruit of the Holy Spirit, even when we don’t feel like it. It’s not easy, but I strive to do so even during difficulties.
