Hello, Could anyone please give me the lyrics to Give me Joy in my heart.  I know there are a few versions and I'm pretty confused!

Thanks

Hi Guest,

Not sure if this is the one you're thinking of, but the song I know with these words goes like this:

1.
Give me joy in my heart, keep me praising,
Give me joy in my heart, I pray,
Give me joy in my heart, keep me praising,
Keep me praising 'till the break of day.

Chorus
Sing hosanna, sing hosanna,
Sing hosanna to the King of kings!
Sing hosanna, sing hosanna,
Sing hosanna to the King.

2.
Give me peace in my heart, keep me praying,
Give me peace in my heart, I pray,
Give me peace in my heart, keep me praying,
Keep me praying 'till the end of day.

Some people may know the song better as "Give Me Oil in My Lamp":

1.
Give my oil in my lamp, keep me burning,
Give me oil in my lamp, I pray,
Give my oil in my lamp, keep me burning,
Keep me burning 'till the end of day.

Chorus
Sing hosanna, sing hosanna,
Sing hosanna to the King of kings!
Sing hosanna, sing hosanna,
Sing hosanna to the King.

2.
Give me peace in my heart, keep me resting,
Give me peace in my heart, I pray.
Give me peace in my heart, keep me resting,
Keep me resting 'till the end of day.

As you say, there are more versions out there, but I think these are the two most popular.

God bless!
Steve
