Jesus You're the center of my joy
Lord all that's good and perfect
Comes from You
You're the heart of my contentment
Hope for all I do
Jesus You're the center of my joy

When I've lost my direction
You're the compass for my way
You're the pilot when
Nights are long and cold
Through the sadness You are the laughter
That shadows all my fears
When I'm down and out
Your hand is there to hold

You are why I find pleasure
In the simple things in life
You're the music in the meadows
And the streams
You're in the voices of my children
In my family and my home
You're the source and finisher
Of my highest dreams

    He is everything ?without him nothing exists. There is no joy whatsoever without christ as the centre of my life. He is the all in all -- there is no life without him.

    Eddybazz from calabar in nigeria thinks;

    This is a heart-poured testimony from a heart that has known the true essence of gods ever faithful love, and could only best tell of this beautiful feeling by describing god as one who is the center of his joy... Hallelujah!!!
