  1. Child of Joy

From the recording Child of Joy

<p><span style="color: #000000;">After I left the bandleader I was living with I moved in with my brother and his family. I woke up one morning early and longed to be close to Jesus so I started reading my Bible. I started to write down the things I felt God was saying to me through His Word and the words of CHILD OF JOY just came flowing out. Later that week I added music to it.</span></p>
