“The Eye of Joy’s Hold”, a worship poem from L.Willows (Joy, beholding God, God’s Glory)




The Eye of Joy’s Hold

What is this joy but a moment that sees,
Glimpses the time when all hindrances free.
All of our cares, when the burdens we bear,
Lift from our hearts and there our lives share.

Love in the fellowship, sweet honeyed noon.
All of us swaying to the music in a swoon.
Lifted with faces that shine with delight,
Oh, I can see this, I see it tonight.

What is this Life that the heart can behold,
Held in a moment, with the eye of Joy’s Hold.
Come let us join, let us share in the sweet fold,
Kept in that joy, in the story here told.

Isaiah 25:9 – “It will be said on that day, “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us. This is the LORD; we have waited for him; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.”

Hebrews 2:12 -“Looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.”
