Facing His darkest hour,
what did Jesus long to
share with His disciples?
The fullness of His joy.
This hymn helps us
understand and receive that joy.
Set to a familiar tune.
Fullness of joy in You, my Father,
I find in Christ Your Son,
Sharing Your Spirit’s breath, uniting
Our lives to breathe as one.
I share His love, His faith, His peace,
His deep and humble prayer,
Strong in His perfect weakness, trusting
Our Father’s tender care.
How can Your path of tender care be
So rough and dark and steep?
How can Your loving wisdom lead us
To groan and grieve and weep?
My Lord has walked this road before,
And I am not alone.
Fullness of joy is mine in Jesus,
And He will lead me home.
Sharing His life in You, my Father,
I share His fuller joy,
Joy beyond words, aglow with glory
No sorrow can destroy.
This lesson Christ in love would teach
And prove profoundly true:
Father, Your goal and greatest gift is
The joy of knowing You.
