Hold on to your joy!
Peace and happiness, too.
Donít let anyone ever try
To steal it from you!


Joy is not in material things.
Itís what you have inside.
It multiplies when given,
And grows when you divide.


You cannot measure its worth,
Or put a price on what it cost.
Youíll never know its full value
Unless you feel its loss.


So live a life full of joy!
You only have each day.
Let joy become a part of you
As you walk in His way!
