Can’t Take My Joy

key of [Gm]

Jealousy and anger
Greed and hypocrisy
The seasons of human nature
Can’t take my joy from me

Joy Joy Joy Hallelujah

Crucified my Savior
On a hill for all to see
He rose up three days later
Can’t take my joy from me

Went up on a mountaintop
Looking for the victory
I found it in the valley low
Can’t take my joy from me

In this world but of this world
I will never be
I lift my eyes to glory
Can’t take my joy from me
