  1. What a delightful hymn–I love it! ‘Though I’m reading this post-Christmas, I can still be joyful in my Savior and worship Him today. P.S. Thank you, Pastor Mike for becoming a follower of my blog, From the Inside Out. I pray you’ll find the posts meaningful whenever you’re able to visit!


    1. Thank you, Nancy, I’m glad that it brought some delight to you. If you enjoyed the carol, you might want to check out some of the other things that I posted in December, particularly the post, “What Does God Look Like?”

  2. Lovely and true. As the letter to the Philippians advises, Joy is a command. I’m re-reading Victor Kuligin’s “Ten Things I Wish Jesus Never Said” and right before I finally got time to read your wonderful post, read from Kuligin: “In Christ this obedience was a joy. Jesus delighted to do the will of the Father. He even likened it to something as life-staining as food.” I am rather recent to the party of realizing joy is a choice, but I’m getting there. Thanks for the guitar chords and piano notes as well. I shall worship today with your hymn.
