I Can’t Contain My Joy (But Why Would I Want To?)

Knowing the horrifying depth of my sin enables me to appreciate the immense grace God has lavished on me through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Far from an academic understanding of the atonement, the reality that Jesus took the punishment that rightfully belongs to me, assigning His righteousness to me, fills me with irrepressible joy!

That’s why I love today’s upbeat hymn. It overflows with both documented truth and unrestrained celebration as it rejoices in God’s grace. Try singing along as you think about the amazing truths in the lyrics. I believe you’ll end up feeling as joyful as I feel.
