The Light of Your Face

“Lord, … Let the light of your radiant face break through and shine upon us! The intense pleasure you give me surpasses the gladness of harvest time, even more than when the harvesters gaze upon their ripened grain and when their new wine overflows.” Psalms 4:6b-7 TPT

When a farmer sees his field
Of ripened grain
There is joy in his heart
That from the earth and rain
A fine crop has grown
A harvest of gain

But when the light of Your face Lord
Shines upon me
The joy that fills my heart
Is a greater thing in deed
The power of Your Presence
Your love, Your peace, Your joy
The sweet beauty of Your essence
Is all I need and so much more

When the vintner sees his vats
Overflowing with new wine
There is joy in his heart
That from the earth and rain
A fine crop has grown
And a fine wine is made

But when the light of Your face Lord
Shines upon me
The joy that fills my heart
Is a greater thing in deed
The power of Your Presence
Your love, Your peace, Your joy
The sweet beauty of Your essence
Is all I need and so much more

When a builder has built
A beautiful new home
There is joy in his heart
That his creation is done
And people will be blessed
By making it their home

But when the light of Your face Lord
Shines upon me
The joy that fills my heart
Is a greater thing in deed
The power of Your Presence
Your love, Your peace, Your joy
The sweet beauty of Your essence
Is all I need and so much more

When a composer has written
A song that’s full of joy
He knows the people who listen
Will be embraced and rejoice
And his heart is full of happiness
To share joys embrace

But when the light of Your face Lord
Shines upon me
The joy that fills my heart
Is a greater thing in deed
The power of Your Presence
Your love, Your peace, Your joy
The sweet beauty of Your essence
Is all I need and so much more

When artist paints a picture
Full of light and love and laughter
It will become a treasure
And be received with pleasure
By those who come to see
A piece of beauty for ever

But when the light of Your face Lord
Shines upon me
The joy that fills my heart
Is a greater thing in deed
The power of Your Presence
Your love, Your peace, Your joy
The sweet beauty of Your essence
Is all I need and so much more

Make a playlist of the songs or music that speak to you of the joy of Jesus’ Presence and use it daily in your worship time and any other time it is convenient.

Write or draw all the things about Jesus that give you joy.

Write or draw one or more of your experiences of God/Jesus presence.

Sit quietly and remember one of your experiences of God/Jesus/Holy Spirit’s Presence reliving it in as much detail as you can remember.
