Whether Winter, Summer, Autumn or Spring –
Take the time to laugh and sing.
The joy of the Lord is truly your strength
And is also a weapon of war –
For the enemy would have you oppressed
And I would have you stand tall.
There is much joy in ‘victory!’
And the victory has already been won.
There is much opposition as you push on for me
But my strength will always be enough
When you fully trust in me.
Build yourselves up in your most holy faith,
Spending time with me – strong in my Word,
And enjoying your time with me.
“Rejoice! Rejoice! – and again I say Rejoice!”,
Taking time out from your busyness –
The momentum of the world around you.
Be still and know that I am God – your Father God,
Who loves and enjoys his children.
Rejoice with me as you run your race
Knowing that I am alongside you
Whatever the season.
