Joy Will Come

Joy will come in the morning Riding on the wings of the dawn

Joy will come, believe
Joy will come, Joy will come

Joy will come, believe
Joy will come, Joy will come

What is this whisper small
I'm hearing
So far above it all
It's speaking
Your still the sovereign Lord
There's healing in your wings.

I've heard of community schools (corrupt places where hundreds of children are listening to one teacher in a very tight space) but I'd never seen one with my own eyes. When we arrived at the place, I got out of the bus and greeted the community school coordinator with a smile and a quick thank you.
