For king and country – joy

For King and country – Joy

 

Recently I just discover this group. I must say that I am falling in love with all their production. The fist title I discover was joy. I was sad and just listening to this gave me simply joy.

For King and Country is a Christian pop duo composed of Australian brothers Joel Luke Smallbone. In 2015 they win the Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song.

They declare :

The power of music can impact our mood, emotions, our day. But when you merge the strength of music with the heart, hope and passion of the Gospel… it has the ultimate power not only to change someone’s day, but to impact them for eternity. This is why we write music and sing songs – we hope that people will be moved, encouraged and stirred to live a life for Someone greater than themselve

 

verse 1: Luke Smallbone]
Lately, I’ve been reading, watching the nightly news
Can’t seem to find the rhythm, just wanna sing the blues
Feels like a song that never… stops
Feels like it’s never gonna

[Pre-Chorus: Joel Smallbone]
Gotta get that fire, fire, back in my bones
Before my heart, heart, turns into stone
So somebody please pass the megaphone
I’ll shout it on the count of three
One, two, three

[Chorus 1: Joel & Luke Smallbone]
Oh, hear my prayer tonight, I’m singing to the sky
Give me strength to raise my voice, let me testify
Oh, hear my prayer tonight, ’cause this is do or die
The time has come to make a choice
And I choose joy
Let it move you, let it move, let it move you
Yeah, I choose joy
Let it move you, let it move, let it move you

[Verse 2: Joel & Luke Smallbone]
Yeah-eh, back when I was young, my eyes were full of life
But now that I am older, I live at the speed of light
Feels like the cycle never… stops
Feels like it’s never gonna

[Pre-Chorus: Joel & Luke Smallbone]
Gotta get that fire, fire, back in my bones
Before my heart, heart, turns into stone
So somebody please pass the megaphone
I’ll shout it on the count of three
One, two, three

[Chorus 2: Joel & Luke Smallbone]
Oh, hear my prayer tonight, I’m singing to the sky
Give me strength to raise my voice, let me testify
Oh, hear my prayer tonight, ’cause this is do or die
The time has come to make a choice
And I choose joy
Let it move you, let it move, let it move you
Yeah, I choose joy
Let it move you, let it move, let it move you
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of night
Oh, with You by my side, I’m stepping into the light
I choose joy
Let it move you, let it move, let it move you

[Bridge: Luke Smallbone]
I need that joy, joy, joy, joy
Down in my heart, down in my heart to stay
I need that joy, joy, joy, joy
Down in my heart, down in my heart to stay

[Turn]

[Chorus 3: Joel & Luke Smallbone]
And I choose joy
Let it move you, go let it move, go let it move you
Oh, I choose joy
Let it move you, oh let it move, let it move you
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of night
Oh, with You by my side, I’m stepping into the light
I choose joy
Go let it move you, go let it move, go let it move you

[Outro: Joel & Luke Smallbone]
I need that joy, joy, joy, joy
Down in my heart, down in my heart to stay
I need that joy, joy, joy, joy
Down in my heart, down in my heart to stay
