Your Joy

“We look away from the natural realm and we fasten our gaze onto Jesus who birthed faith within us and who leads us forward into faith’s perfection. His example is this: Because his heart was focused on the joy of knowing that you would be his, he endured the agony of the cross and conquered its humiliation, and now sits exalted at the right hand of the throne of God!” Hebrews 12:2 TPT

The judgement the crowd
Pronounced against You
The “Crucify! Crucify!”
Was to me due
But Your joy in me meant
You took it in my stead

Jesus I am Your joy, Your prize
Reborn to be Your eternal bride
You endured the cross
To have me at Your side

The cut of the whip
That was used on You
That punishment
Was to me due
But Your joy in me meant
You took it in my stead

Jesus I am Your joy, Your prize
Reborn to be Your eternal bride
You endured the cross
To have me at Your side

The crown of thorns
Which cut Your head
To bring down pride
Was due me instead
But Your joy in me meant
You took it in my stead

Jesus I am Your joy, Your prize
Reborn to be Your eternal bride
You endured the cross
To have me at Your side

The nails that pierced
Right through Your hands
Punishment for sin
That was my inheritance
But Your joy in me meant
You took it in my stead

Jesus I am Your joy, Your prize
Reborn to be Your eternal bride
You endured the cross
To have me at Your side

The agony that you endured
As You hung upon the cross
Your body broken like a thief
That was my sin’s cost
But Your joy in me meant
You took it in my stead

Jesus I am Your joy, Your prize
Reborn to be Your eternal bride
You endured the cross
To have me at Your side

The shame of being crucified
As a criminal, fully tried
The wages of sin
For which justice cried
Your joy in me meant
You took it in my stead

Jesus I am Your joy, Your prize
Reborn to be Your eternal bride
You endured the cross
To have me at Your side

Death in this world
And separation from God
Complete death for sin
Was my sin’s due cost
But Your joy in me meant
You took it in my stead

Jesus I am Your joy, Your prize
Reborn to be Your eternal bride
You endured the cross
To have me at Your side

With Your resurrection life
Raising You to God’s side
You lifted me with You
One as Your eternal bride
Joyfully, freely, In Your love divine
Your prize for all that You have done!

Jesus I am Your joy, Your prize
Reborn to be Your eternal bride
You endured the cross
To have me at Your side

Now I live in Your love divine
Freely dwelling by Your side
You and I, Jesus, one, united
In Your Holy Spirit’s Presence
Filled with joy and love forever
For they are Your very essence

Jesus I am Your joy, Your prize
Reborn to be Your eternal bride
You endured the cross
To have me at Your side

I embrace Your joy, Your Joy in me!
For it gives me life and  strength to be
Your faithful lover, Your pride and joy
God’s child, Your Joy, eternally
One with You, forever free
To live in Your joy, Your joy in me!
