Oh! What joy! What Joy!
It is to love the Lord

To celebrate without restraint
His grace unto us ward

In His presence, we are blameless
For the debts of sin were paid
When the Son of Man
For man's own sake
Descended to the grave

Oh! What joy! What Joy!
It is to follow Him

To walk the path least trodden
For the glory of our King

In His presence, we are blameless
For the debts of sin were paid
When the Son of Man
For man's own sake
Descended to the grave.

Oh! What joy! What Joy!
It is to serve in faith

Believing in a morrow where
We march amongst the saints

In His presence, we are blameless
For the debts of sin were paid
When the Son of Man
For man's own sake
Descended to the grave.
A lighter heart I have not felt
Since fear and doubt within it dwelt
With chains and shackles roundabout
A straight jacket on love

I thought I felt as others do
As free to love, as free to coo
Until I had to coo to you
Until I had to coo to you

A jingle jangle awkward dance
This was the form of my advance
With two left feet I tried to Waltz
With each left foot I found some faults

I thought I felt as others do
As free to love, as free to coo
Until I had to coo to you
Until I had to coo to you

A startled bull in China shop
A bungling fool, more clumsied up
You had me when you said "Hello"
What did I say? Uh... I don't know?

I thought I felt as others do
As free to love, as free to coo
Until I had to coo to you
Until I had to coo to you

Until I had to coo to you
I thought I felt as others do
As free to love, as free to coo
Turns out in fact, that was untrue.
You're a day over twenty,
Or a year, or nine more
So it's time to get hassled
For we have been keeping score

You may not feel it, but you're lonely
And you've got to find a spouse
You may not know it, but you're homely
And you need to buy a house

When we call you "twenty-something"
It just means we've had enough
It's a sign we think you're ready
To find love, and kids, and stuff

So start looking and stop slacking!
We are sure it will pay off
And speaking of getting paid
Find a job, the market's tough

Look, we know that you are sceptic
And we know, that you're afraid
Yes we know, you don't feel ready
But we're sick of your delays

Step it up, young man or woman
It is time to do your part
Best read "Twen [T minus something]"
It counts down, until you start.
I AM NOT
INSANE
YET!!!

This bluster belies the beads of sweat
Scoring his forehead and marring his vest as
His heart reattempts an escape from his chest

His eyes seem to dart as if they're on a quest
His words are so quick that they all come in bursts
His thoughts are belaboured; they seem such a mess
Still he doesn't think he's a man in distress

He's worried because he knows these are the signs
He's worried because it's happened other times
He's Worried. So worried. He's out of his mind.
A panic so manic, that it's a rare find...

YET
INSANE
I AM NOT!!!
"Time! More Time!" the teachers cry
As six by ten seconds fly by
"I started in the afternoon
How did it get this late, so soon?"

"Why!? Why!?" principals sigh
As two in three students fall shy
"I know we did, all that we could
Why is it not being understood?"

"How!? How!?" the district asks
Can we solve for [tool] in [task]?
"What can we use across the map
That gets our grades up to the cap?"

"Whoa! Whoa!" the gurus say
Let's look at this a different way
"A problem underlies these facts
Let's analyze..
   and do the math"
