Newsboys – Joy lyrics

Verse One:

If life is water, I was dry as the Tuscon dirt
If it's a gamble, I'd already lost my shirt
If it's a journey, I was dazwed without a clue
I flipped a "U" back to the first love I ever knew


You give me joy that's unspeakable
And I like it
And I like it, yea yea
Your love for me is irresistible
I can't fight it
I can't fight it, yea yea
You carried the cross and took my shame
I believe it
I believe it, yea yea
You shine your light of amazing grace,
I recieve it
I recieve it, yea yea

Verse Two:

If life's a battle, the invasion is complete
If it's a rythym, I have found the perfect beat
If it's a renaissance, I've got a new birthday
The world don't give it
And the world can't take it away


(I'm) bowed and broken, everything's new
All that I need, You're like water to seed
And how Your love, rights everything wrong
In my weakness
You're ever stronger, You're pulling me back
Where I belong

Chorus (x3)
