I've Got the Joy

Representative Text

1 I've got the joy, joy, joy, joy,
Down in my heart,
Down in my heart.
Down in my heart;
I've got the joy, joy, joy, joy,
Down in my heart,
Down in my heart to stay.

2 I've got the peace that passeth understanding,
Down in my heart,
Down in my heart.
Down in my heart;
I've got the peace that passeth understanding,
Down in my heart,
Down in my heart to stay.

3 I've got the love of Jesus, love of Jesus,
Down in my heart,
Down in my heart.
Down in my heart;
I've got the love of Jesus, love of Jesus,
Down in my heart,
Down in my heart to stay.

4 For there is therefore now no condemnation,
Down in my heart,
Down in my heart.
Down in my heart;
For there is therefore now no condemnation,
Down in my heart,
Down in my heart to stay.
