About the song
: Karla remembers being annoyed that the Lord kept prompting her to write this song during a very stressful and unpleasant time in her life. She really didn't want to write a song about joy. In the end, God reminded her that joy has everything to do with Him and very little to do with what's happening in our lives.

Joy! Song Clip

Joy joy joy joy down in my soul
I've got joy joy Jesus made me whole
Joy joy joy joy the half has not been told
About my joy joy I've got joy real joy

When I'm feeling lonely
My heart is feeling blue
I remind myself just what I need to do
I look up to heaven my God is standing by
And I just start to sing as joy comes back inside

When I think of His goodness and what He's done for me
Joy wells up inside me Jesus set me free
I cannot explain it but this one thing I know
I have got real joy down in my soul

I've got joy real joy
Peace that passes understanding - joy
The world didn't give and the world can't take it joy
