There’s something about the joy in a smile
That brings a few tears to my eyes.
It’s a little silly, I’m not quite sure why,
But my heart overflows with delight!
A smile, a laugh, in the midst of sorrow,
Is a magnificent, wonderful show!
A dazzling light amongst the shadows;
In the dark, blissfulness glows!
A beautiful contrast, ageless and fair,
That warms us all to the core.
The jovial voice after years of despair:
This joy is from my Dear Lord!
Love from a friend, in its due season,
Brings joy to the deepest of grievance.
Every smile, a graceful achievement;
The beauty of God’s benevolence.
