God Our Joy


God of pleasure, depths of joy
All surround your glorious throne;
Flow forever to your own.

There's no thing--no earthly toy
That can meet our hearts' desire.
Toys all perish in your fire.

May we turn to you for joy--
Humble hearts, submitted, still,
Eager now to do your will.

You make known to me the path of life; 
   in your presence there is fullness of joy;
   at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
       (Psalm 16:11 ESV)

A good word, thanks.

Jesus first
Others next
Yourself last!

Thanks, David, for stopping by this blog. Keeping the Lord first is so simple and so hard and so essential!
