Not from difficulty or frustration or pressure was my day in danger of preventing joy, but from excessively mundane and unwanted pursuit. One need not be bored nor down when the scope of all eternity, the God of the universe, dwells in the heart by grace through faith. So I asked and He provided:

Lord, please give me joy today
The knowledge of Your presence with me
Awareness of  all that may
Be fulfilled by Your Spirit in me
Joy in Your salvation free
Hilarity giving to the poor
The Gospel that they may see
Blessing now, in eternity more
Joy come in, joy reaching out
All God has and will do and nourish
He is great I want to shout
May His work in our time now flourish
God’s peace in my heart to stay
No regrets to repent or to act
Clinging to Him, always pray
Accepting His Word as ruling fact
Joy in who I am in Him
Happiness in the path He does give
Contentment when hard trials ever trim
Joy-robbing sin so I live
Now may I sing a new song
Of the blessing of knowing my Lord
On Him and His works be long
Raise voice as I praise afford
