Even if things sometimes go wrong.
We can weep or "bump along",
But why not sing a happy song?
Choosing joy will overcome
Those things which make us feel glum.
Don't just yawn and say, "Ho-hum".
Let gladness on your heart-strings strum.
Cheerfulness within will grow,
And soon your joy will overflow.
As you spread joy to and fro,
Gloominess will be "no-show".
"For the joy of the Lord is your strength." Nehemiah 8:10 KJV
