"Surprised by Joy" as written by and Carolyn Bernice Arends....
Every once in a while on a summer night
The sunset glows and I see the light
And when the stars come out it dawns on me
There is holy ground underneath my feet

Chorus:
Surprised by joy
Awash in love
Just one taste of grace
And I'm overcome
You've got a way
Of breaking through
'Til I'm surprised by joy
I'm amazed by you

Just the other day when I kissed my son
I was blown away by what you've done
'Cause when he smiles at me with his toothless grin
All at once I see your hand on him

Chorus:
Surprised by joy
Awash in love
Just one taste of grace
And I'm overcome
You've got a way
Of breaking through
'Til I'm surprised by joy
I'm amazed by you

And when I least expect it
You surround me
You astound me with your love

Chorus:
Surprised by joy
Awash in love
Just one taste of grace
And I'm overcome
You've got a way
Of breaking through
'Til I'm surprised by joy
I'm amazed by you
