Pure Joy


Chorus:
Consider it pure joy
When you face trials, trials of many kinds (joy, joy)
Consider it pure joy
Know that the tests of your faith
Can make you steadfast, patient and wise (joy, joy)
Perseverance must finish its work (joy, joy)
That you may be complete
Not lacking anything
Consider it pure joy
When you face the many trials of life (joy, joy)

Trials of life (joy, joy)

Blessed is the man
Who endures trials again and again
When he has stood the test
He will receive the best
The crown of life which God has promised
To those who love Him
Be patient as you wait for God's return
Like the farmer waits for rain
For his harvest to confirm
Take courage and persevere
For the coming of our Lord is near

Repeat Chorus

Pure joy (joy, joy)

As an example of suffering and patience
Look at the prophets who spoke in God's name
We know how happy they were
Because they stayed true to God
Even though they suffered great pain
Job is an example of steadfast trust
Bringin' joy in God's master plan
The Lord is tender and merciful (merciful)
Compassionate to all men

Consider it pure joy
Consider it pure joy
Consider it pure joy
Consider it pure joy
Consider it pure joy

When you're feelin' lonely
When your heart is way down
When your friends forsake you
And you feel alone

Repeat Chorus

When you face the many trials of life, pure joy (joy, joy)

Consider it pure joy
