    From Joy Burst

    Glorious Unspeakable Joy
    Karen Holland … 1-12-2006

    The Joy of the Lord
    Joy unspeakable, no tongue can tell
    The Joy of the Lord
    Overflowing with His glory
    Joy eternal bursting forth from His never ending well
    Anointed with His oil of joy
    Bathed in His fragrance
    Soaked in His presence
    His joy made complete
    A new song in my mouth
    A song from deep within my soul
    Jubilant song bursting forth
    A song that can not be stopped
    The Joy of the Lord
    My strength.

    Exodus 34:5-7 NKJV
    5 Now the Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the Lord. 6 And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, 7 keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.”

    Psalm 86:15-16 NKJV
    15 But You, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious,
    Longsuffering and abundant in mercy and truth.
    16 Oh, turn to me, and have mercy on me!
    Give Your strength to Your servant,
    And save the son of Your maidservant{deliver your slave}.

    *save the son of Your maidservant=> used metaphorically and idiomatically to emphasize the psalmist’s humility before the Lord and his status as the Lord’s servant.
