Song: I Can Have Joy

by Jenny and Michael Whatcott

May 31, 2019

It’s another primary song! The lyrics are based on Russell M. Nelson’s October 2016 conference talk “Joy and Spiritual Survival”. We truly can have joy at any time and in any place, and this joy comes because of Jesus Christ. Enjoy!

I can have joy at any time.
I can be glad in any place.
This joy comes because of Jesus.
I’ll look to Him in every thought.
I’ll focus on my Savior’s joy.

When I am sad, He comforts me.
When I repent, He offers peace.
This joy comes because of Jesus.
I’ll try to live a righteous life.
I’ll learn to know my Savior’s joy.

I can have joy at any time.
I can be glad in any place.
This joy comes because of Jesus.
I’ll keep the cov’nants I have made.
I want to feel my Savior’s joy.

Joy and Spiritual Survival

When the focus of our lives is on Jesus Christ and His gospel, we can feel joy regardless of what is happening—or not happening—in our lives.

-President Russell M. Nelson
