There is joy, deep, deep in my heart,
Welling up to trumpet and praise the Lord:
Lifting praise high!
I am able to overcome the criticism of the scoffers
Who called me barren.
For I can now delight in your creation in my womb!
No-one lease is Divine.
No-one else is holy.
No-one else is the Rock, like our God!
This God of miracles has blessed me:
Seven times I am blest!
In the way of knowing my need
and hearing my prayer,
God is shown to be there – for me!.
This is the God who knows all.
This is the God who breaks armaments
And lifts-up those who are on the edges.
He will tend to them.
So the hungry and thirsty and poor and lonely
Will receive the promises of life.
(1 Samuel 1-2)
