In every circumstance its fitting

It’s always the right thing to do

Rejoicing in our Savior

The decision is up to you


I’ll remind you once again

Make it your goal to rejoice

It’s easier to remember

Once determined by your choice


Consider the alternatives

Fear, anger, worry, doubt

None lead to a good ending

That’s not what joy is about


This is not a time for silliness

A fake attitude is not expected

No laissez faire response

Phoniness will be rejected


Move to inward truth and joy

Make the decision to rejoice

It starts with a desire

Expressed with the voice


I’m not saying this will be easy

A challenge to be sure

Rejoice and rejoice again

Marvelous grace will endure


Oh, to be thankful

Let joy arise within

Start rejoicing today

A perfect time to begin
