Bethel Music - Joy Of The Lord (Spontaneous) Lyrics

[Chanting in tongues]

Spring up, o well
Spring up, o well

[Chanting in tongues]

You turn my mourning into joy, my mourning into joy
You break depression
You turn my mourning into joy
O Jesus, you break depression
You break depression

Let freedom reign
Let freedom reign
Let freedom reign
Break off the chains
Break off the chains
Let freedom reign

The joy of the Lord, the joy of the Lord
Is our strength
The joy of the Lord, the joy of the Lord
Is our strength
The joy of the Lord, the joy of the Lord
Is our strength
Over every problem, and every possibility
The joy of the Lord, the joy of the Lord
Is our strength

Joy, joy, joy
Overflowing joy
Overflowing joy
Overflowing joy that breaks depression
That breaks depression
Overflowing joy
The joy of the Lord, the joy of the Lord
Is our strength
The joy of the Lord, the joy of the Lord
Is our strength
The joy of the Lord, the joy of the Lord
Is our strength
The joy of the Lord, the joy of the Lord
Is our strength
The joy of the Lord, the joy of the Lord
Is our strength

  11. T K

    Does anyone notice the moment(2:48-2:55) when @ Kari Jobe takes a pause to look at Jenn when she sings "Oh look how you turn my mourning into Joy..." jumping from side to side. Almost thinking "Oh my God, Is Jenn okay?". Or just amazed at such a passion.

    This is one of the most touching and anointed worship performances I've ever seen. Thank you Lord Jesus Christ!

    Deborah Patterson

    Angie Nucolo that’s the difference between a performance and unscripted true worship. Jenn Johnson, steff, Amanda Cook....all of them have set the bar HIGH for intimate and pure worship because they don’t perform, they worship....It’s insane haha

    when i try to sing this song or sing along all i do is cry there is a huge anoiting and the spirit of the lord is always monitoring this songs.

  58. Tiana Miller-Jackson

    Reading all of these comments it's amazing to see that, although we are spread all over the earth in many places, we truly belong to one Spirit (1 Cor 12)! We are all feeling the same move of the Spirit and breakthrough as we watch this video! It's fun to imagine when we get to heaven, the conversations that will happen.

    "Did you see that Joy of the Lord video from Bethel?"
    "Oh yeah, that video totally wrecked me! I was in the middle of work but I just started weeping!"
    "Me too, I got healed from depression watching that video"

    So fun ^.^

    Understanding Who The Biblical Antichrist Is & His "Mark": Hence Mark of the Beast

    When the papal bull reached Martin Luther (Founder of Protestantism), he said: “I despise and attack it, as impious, false.... It is Christ Himself who is condemned therein.... I rejoice in having to bear such ills for the best of causes. Already I feel greater liberty in my heart; for at last I know that the pope is antichrist, and that his throne is that of Satan himself.”—D’Aubigne, b. 6, ch. 9. G

    Revelation 14:9, 10 -"And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation..."

    What is the "MARK" of the Pope?
    "Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change (Saturday Sabbath to Sunday) was her act... And the act is a MARK of her ecclesiastical authority in religious things." H.F. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons.

    "Sunday is our MARK of authority. . .the church isabove the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact" Catholic Record of London, Ontario Sept 1,1923.

    —When Sunday observance shall be enforced by law, and the world shall be enlightened concerning the obligation of the true Sabbath, then whoever shall transgress the command of God, to obey a precept which has no higher authority than that of Rome, will thereby honor popery above God. He is paying homage to Rome, and to the power which enforces the institution ordained by Rome. He is worshiping the beast and his image. As men then reject the institution which God has declared to be the sign ofHis authority, and honor in its stead that which Rome has chosen as the token of her supremacy, they will thereby accept the signof allegiance to Rome,—“the mark of the beast.” And it is not until the issue is thus plainly set before the people, and they are brought to choose between the commandments of God and the commandments of men, that those who continue in transgression will receive “the mark of the beast.”

    The change of the Sabbath is the sign or mark of the authority of the Romish church.Those who, understanding the claims of the fourth commandment, choose to observe the false sabbath in the place of the true, are thereby paying homage to that power by which alone it is commanded. The mark of the beast is the papal sabbath, which has been accepted by the world in the place of the day of God’s appointment. 

    No one has yet received the mark of the beast. The testing time has not yet come.There are true Christians in every church, not excepting the Roman Catholic communion. None are condemned until they have had the light and have seen the obligation of the fourth commandment. But when the decree shall go forth enforcing the counterfeit sabbath, and the loud cry of the third angel shall warn men against the worship of the beast and his image, the line will be clearly drawn between the false and the true. Then those who still continue in transgression will receive the mark of the beast. 

    With rapid steps we are approaching this period. When Protestant churches shall unite with the secular power to sustain a false religion, for opposing which their ancestors endured the fiercest persecution, then will the papal sabbath be enforced by the combined authority of church and state.There will be a national apostasy, which will end only in national ruin.

    When Seal of God Is Refused—If the light of truth has been presented to you, revealing the Sabbath of the fourth commandment, and showing that there is no foundation in the Word of God for Sunday observance, and yet you still cling to the false sabbath, refusing to keep holy the Sabbath which God calls “My holy day,” you receive the mark of the beast. When does this take place? When you obey the decree that commands you to cease from labor on Sunday and worship God, while you know that there is not a word in the Bible showing Sunday to be other than a common working day, you consent to receive the mark of the beast, and refuse the seal of God.

    As a Result of Disregard of Light—God has given men the Sabbath as a sign between Him and them, as a test of their loyalty.Those who, after the light regarding God’s law comes to them, continue to disobey and exalt human laws above the law of God in the great crisis before us will receive the mark of the beast. - Evangelism

    "Joy Of The Lord"

    Though the tears may fall my song will rise
    My song will rise to You
    Though my heart may fail my song will rise
    My song will rise to You
    While there's breath in my lungs
    I will praise you Lord

    In the dead of night I’ll lift my eyes
    I’ll lift my eyes to You
    Though the waters rise I’ll lift my eyes
    I’ll lift my eyes to You
    While there's hope in this heart
    I will praise You Lord

    The joy of the Lord is my strength
    The joy of the Lord is my strength
    In the darkness I’ll dance
    In the shadows I’ll sing
    The joy of the Lord is my strength

    When I cannot see You with my eyes
    Let faith arise to You
    When I cannot feel Your hand in mine
    Let faith arise to You
    God of mercy and love
    I will praise You Lord

    How You shine with glory Lord of light
    I feel alive with You
    In Your presence now I come alive
    I am alive with You
    There is strength when I say
    I will praise You Lord

    The joy of the Lord is my strength
    The joy of the Lord is my strength
    In the darkness I’ll dance
    In the shadows I’ll sing
    The joy of the Lord is my strength

    When sorrow comes my way
    You are the shield around me
    Always You remain
    My courage in the fight

    I hear You call my name
    Jesus I am coming
    Walking on the waves
    Reaching for Your light

    The joy of the Lord is my strength
    The joy of the Lord is my strength
    In the darkness I’ll dance
    In the shadows I’ll sing
    The joy of the Lord is my strength

    Beautiful Jenn Johnson!! Her spirit is contagious:))

  80. Vivi Jaime

    This worship expresses so much love and freedom. This video always fills me up with the holy spirit, never fails, just like GOD's love.

  81. Carl Praktish

    love love the music, but as a Christian, I think that the singer needs to be a little more modest in her clothing. Yes she is beautiful, but she doesn't need to draw so much attention to herself...

    Cass Martinez

    Bianca Hotca Hola Bianca, en mi modesta opinión si esta chica suele ser un punto distractor, el problema no es ella, si ella es causa de debilidad entonces es necesario cerrar esto y orar para que Dios trate con esa debilidad :)

    Danielle Blair

    Carl Praktish I don't see it? she is wearing a tank top? you can see her shoulders I don't see any clevage or anything inappropriate? I'm sure it gets hot on stage

    Tezne Jensel

    so what are christians suppose to swim in when they go to the beach? a dress? a pants?
    she's worshiping our God and that's all what he wants to do as sons and daughters

  82. Joshua Ayo

    i blessed through Ashton songs

  83. Emokode benjamin

    oh my god. there is no place like ur presence

  84. Jean Apo

    Please Lord help me keep my mind active and brave so that way I will always be aware of what's going on through the world 🙏🙏🙏 !!!

  85. Lena Mctaggart

    I really wish that Jenn Johnson would go to the worship night in miami at the bank united center, On October 20, 2016. I love her so much and I love the way she does praise and worship. I told my mom I would be moving to California so I can go to the church in redding and see everyone and worship with them.

    Rita Mojawk

    Lena Mctaggart I know right, well I live in East Coast but I am going there to thier church one day soon , God's will I will make it there in Jesus name amen
