so excited...

I absolutely love the song that's playing...Center Of My Joy. (Can you hear it?)
I sing it around the house sometimes, just to the Lord and myself mainly.

Tonight, I found out that Ruben Studdard recorded it! Wow!
This is my kind of music. It's the kind I listen to every day. I must have this album!
I'm surprised that he recorded it because it's a really old song.

I hope you'll listen to the end. I just love it. The choir kicks in after the first verse.
This song defines me.
It is the absolute perfect song for how I feel about the Lord.
Hope you like it too!
Jesus You're the center of my joy
All that's good and perfect
Comes from You
You're the heart of my contentment
Hope for all I do
Jesus
You're the center of my joy
Oh, help me sing

Jesus You're the center of my joy
All that's good and perfect
Said it comes from You
Yes it does, yes it does
You're the heart
of my contentment
Hope for all I do
What's his name?
Jesus
Jesus
You're the center of my joy
Oh

When I've lost my direction
You're the compass for my way
You're the fire and light when
Nights are long and cold
In sadness You are the
laughter that
shadows all my fears
When I'm all alone
Your hand is there to hold
Oh, oh

Jesus, yes you are
Jesus
You're the center of my joy
All that's good and perfect
Comes from You
You're the heart of my contentment
Hope for all I do
Jesus You're the
center of my joy
My joy

You are why I find pleasure
In the simple things in life
You're the music in the meadows
And the streams
The voices of the children
My family and my home
You're the source and finisher
Of my highest dreams
Oh, Jesus, oh

Jesus You're the center of my joy
All that's good and perfect
Said it comes from You
Yes it does, yes it does
You're the heart of my contentment
Hope for all I do
Oh
Jesus
You're the center of my joy
Oh Jesus
You're the center of my joy
And Jesus, nobody but you, you you you you you
Of my Joy
Jesus, you are the center of my joy
Jesus, you are the center of my joy
When I was down
You picked me up
When I was thirsty
You filled my cup
Jesus
You're the center of my joy
Oh Jesus,
You're the center of my joy
Oh oh
My joy
Hallelujah
