Where Joy and Sorrow Meet

I had the great pleasure and responsibility of singing this song last Sunday. This song has been ministering to me more AFTER I sang it then as I was learning it. I pray that you are encouraged by the lyrics.

I think we all live in this place. Life is hard. It is full of disapointments, sorrow, strife, bitterness and hurt. It is also full of joy, happiness, acheivements and blessings. Learning to mix the two is the key. Being grateul for EVERYTHING and in EVERY situation is the task of a follower of Christ. I quite often lean to one side of the spectrum. I am on a high or on a low. My prayer is for a heart that rests. A soul that trusts in her Savior and lives life "Where Joy and Sorrow Meet".

Be blessed today,


There’s a place of quiet stillness ‘tween the light and shadows reach
Where the hurting and the hopeless seek everlasting peace
Words of men and songs of angels whisper comfort bittersweet
Mending grief and life eternal where joy and sorrow meet

There is a place where hope remains
In crowns of thorns and crimson stains
And tears that fall on Jesus’ feet
Where joy and sorrow meet

There’s a place the lost surrender and the weary will retreat
Full of grace and mercy tender in times of unbelief
For wounded there is healing, strength is given to the weak
Broken hearts find love redeeming where joy and sorrow meet
(repeat chorus)

There’s a place of thirst and hunger where the roots of faith grow deep
And there is rain and rolling thunder when the road is rough and steep
There is hope in desperation there is victory in defeat
At the cross of restoration where joy and sorrow meet
(repeat chorus)
