"Joy" as written by Niladri Kumar and Talvin Singh....
You give me joy that's unspeakable
And I like it, and I like it, yeah
Your love for me is irresistible
I can't fight it, I can't fight it, yeah

If life is water, I was dry as the tucson dirt
If it's a gamble, I'd already lost my shirt
If it's a journey, I was dazed without a clue
I flipped a "you" back to the first love I ever knew

You give me joy that's unspeakable
And I like it, and I like it, yeah
Your love for me is irresistible
I can't fight it, I can't fight it, yeah

You carried the cross and took my shame
I believe it, I believe it, yeah
you shine Your light of amazing grace
I receive it, I receive it, yeah

If life's a battle, the invasion is complete
If it's a rhythm, I have found the perfect beat
If it's a renaissance, I've got a new birthday
The world don't give it and the world can't take it away

You give me joy that's unspeakable
And I like it, and I like it, yeah
Your love for me is irresistible
I can't fight it, I can't fight it, yeah

You carried the cross and took my shame
I believe it, I believe it, yeah
you shine Your light of amazing grace
I receive it, I receive it, yeah

I'm bowed and broken, every thing's new
All that I need, you're like water to seed
And how your love rights everything wrong
And in my weakness, you're ever stronger
You're pulling me back where I belong

You give me joy that's unspeakable
And I like it, and I like it, yeah
Your love for me is irresistible
I can't fight it, I can't fight it

You carried the cross and took my shame
I believe it, I believe it, yeah
you shine Your light of amazing grace
I receive it, I receive it, yeah

You give me joy that's unspeakable
And I like it, and I like it, yeah
Your love for me is irresistible
I can't fight it, I can't fight it, yeah

You carried the cross and took my shame
I believe it, I believe it, yeah
you shine Your light of amazing grace
I receive it, I receive it, yeah

You give me joy that's unspeakable
And I like it, and I like it, yeah
Your love for me is irresistible
I can't fight it, I can't fight it, yeah

You carried the cross and took my shame
I believe it, I believe it, yeah
you shine Your light of amazing grace
I receive it, I receive it, yeah

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs! No matter what mood you're in, it makes you feel good. When you feel alone or something, you're filled with joy knowing that you have Jesus
