This song is performed by Don Francisco.
The day dawned in confusion
Like a nightmare with no end
Tired and dreary colors
Ragged hopes that wouldn't mend
The grief and fear of death
Just seemed to hang across the sky
And the pain just kept on burnin'
Though the tears had all been cried

We were talkin' as we journeyed
Toward a quiet country town
When another traveler asked us
Why we seemed so sad and down
It was like a dam had burst inside
As I spoke my grief and woe
Amazed that someone leavin' there
Could somehow still not know

But the traveler called us foolish men
And gall and slow of heart
And he showed us from the Scriptures
God had planned it from the start
But it wasn't till the evening
That our eyes were opened there
And we knew that it was Jesus
But He vanished in the air

We rushed back to Jerusalem
To tell the others there
They said "we have seen Him too"
There was excitement everywhere
Nearly shouting to each other
As the realization grew
When all at once He spoke to us
"Peace be unto you"

We started back in terror
For His radiance filled the place
The light was all around Him
And was shining from His face
But then He smiled a smile of love
That left no cause for doubt
And then because He knew our hearts
He spoke our feelings out

"Why are you so troubled?
Why are you in fear?
See My hands and see My feet
I Myself am here
Reach out now and handle Me
Until you've all been shown
My life is more than spirit
For I'm here in flesh and bone"

Some lifted hands toward heaven
And then knelt without a sound
Some just stood and stared at Him
As if rooted to the ground
But I could not contain the joy
That flooded heart and soul
It came rushing out in praises
I had no wish to control!

Joy, joy, joy, joy
Joy, joy, joy, joy

Jesus is the Lord of all
Jesus is the Lord of all
Jesus is the Lord of all
We have been redeemed

Joy, joy, joy, joy!!!!!!!!
Joy, joy,
Jesus is the Lord of all
Jesus is the Lord of all
Jesus is the Lord of all
We have been redeemed

Joy, joy, joy, joy!!!!
Joy, joy, joy, joy!!!
Jesus is the Lord of all
Jesus is the Lord of all
Jesus is the Lord of all!!
We have been redeemed!!

Joy, joy, joy---
