Lyrics – Joy of Love

Joy of Love

He, my enemy, a feral beast hiding in darkness,
lurks through slender weeds to find me weak; he then rejoices,
but I feel, in my heart, love for the man who wants to harm me.
Vouchsafe never-ending harmonic wonders of love.

Sing dulcet new song, music played on red cedar guitar.
Laud on golden harp songs from the heart, joys forevermore.
Embrace eternally sweet tunes as we seek love’s perfect peace.
Surround in charity; deliver me;
Always bathe me in love; bring joy to me.

Composed by Thad Jones (“A Child Is Born”) © 1969
