In the world happiness is based on what's happening,
But in the Kingdom my joy doesn't have to be based 
on what's happening, HAPPY LIVES IN ME. Even when 
circumstances aren't happy. To maintain this level of joy
that the world cannot give, and the world cannot take away. 
I rely, trust, and lean on my savior,  and guess what it's free.
