The joy of my soul

How am I?

The spirit of God is upon me

How did this happen?

God has anointed me

What am I to do?

Bring glad tidings to the poor
Heal the brokenhearted
Proclaim liberty to captives and release to prisoners


In my God is the joy of my soul

What am I to do?

Rejoice always
Pray without ceasing
In all circumstances give thanks


This is the will of God for me in Christ Jesus
