I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy

  I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy
Down in my heart,
Down in my heart,
Down in my heart,
I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy
Down in my heart,
Down in my heart to stay.
  And I’m so happy,
So very happy;
I’ve got the love of Jesus in my heart.
And I’m so happy,
So very happy,
I’ve got the love of Jesus in my heart.

Ah yes, this is certainly an interesting hymn!

You know, I was just down in Georgia last week talking about how wonderful this old hymn is. There is a lot we can learn from past generations... its something that I frequently discuss with Neitzcvhe, Chompsky, Yates we all agree that everything we do is simply for the sake of joy!

Brilliant! I used to sing this in Sunday School when teaching the kids many years ago. How true it is that when we have the love of Jesus in our hearts, we have also got the overflow of heavenly joy wanting to burst out from within us! “The joy of the Lord is our strength”, the bible tells us! It’s infectious! Rejoice always and again I say rejoice, wrote the apostle Paul. Sing it out!

Перевела на русский:

О, что за радость, радость в сердце моём, в сердце моём, в сердце моём!

О, что за радость, радость в сердце моём, в сердце моём всегда!

И я так счастлив!

Да, очень счастлив:

Любовь Иисуса в сердце моём!

И я так счастлив!

Да, очень счастлив:

Любовь Иисуса в сердце моём!

I can remember this as a kid also and we used to sing this along with it. It goes like this.

And if the devil doesn't like he can sit on a tack

sit on a tack

sit on a tack

and if the devil doesn't like he can sit on a tack

sit on a tack

sit on a tack today

and as kids we would stand up and sing this song and we we go to this part we would sit in the seat and say ouch! and stand back up we had a lot of fun with this old song.

I have the love of Jesus Christ my saviour

Down in my heart

Down in my heart

Down in my heart

I have the love of Jesus Christ my saviour

Down in my heart

Down in my heart to stay

I have a peace that passes understanding

Down in my heart

Down in my heart

Down in my heart

I have a peace that passes understanding

Down in my heart

Down in my heart to stay.

I have the wonderful love of my blessed redeemer

Down in my heart....and so on.

This song is awesome! Singing this makes me dance like a kid. Is there any way I can download the tune? So that I can teach the song too to the kids in our church. Thanks! :)
