Possessing the Secret of Joy

Their eyes were watching God

Considering his purposes  

And making decisions 

Children of blood and bone 

Translating intentions 

Into actions 

War and peace 

Fighting for supremacy  

Each and every day 

The color of water 

In their tears 

As they struggle  

The Devil in a blue dress 

Forever tempting  


But the sun also rises 

As they fight to do what’s right 

And conquer the world 

The sound and fury  

Blocked out by God’s love 

Shelters inner calm 

It’s no Catch-22 

Obeying God shapes the kind of joy 

No one can snatch
