Beauty and Joy

Click for downloadable lead sheet:  Beauty and Joy – lead sheet


O the beauty of the breaking dawn

And the beauty of the setting sun

And the beauty of the endless sea

But the greater beauty of Jesus.


There are joys on earth of family and friend

And the joy of heaven knows no end

But the joys of Jesus, both here are there

Far surpass the joys of either.


Lord, I thank You now for setting me free

And I thank You now for welcoming me

For the sweet delight of knowing You

Is the greatest joy of my life.
