"Joy of the Lord"

[NORMA]
Who, who, who?
Happy is He, He, He
Happy am I, I, I!
Happy are we, we, we we!

I feel the joy!
I feel the joy!
I feel the joy in me!

(She laughs.)

Liftin' my pain
When I need it to be!
The joy of the Lord's in me!
Woo-hoo!

[JANIS, spoken]
What the hell?

[NORMA]
I feel no pain!
I feel no pain!
Here in His good company!

[J.D.]
She feels His spirit
Is here on this earth

[JANIS]
It sounds to me
Like she's givin' birth!

[NORMA]
Woo-hoo!

[J.D., spoken]
I'm in!

[NORMA]
Yay!!

[NORMA & J.D.]
Blessed is He!
Blessed is He!
Glad in the joy
Of my Lord's company!
Woo-hoo!

[KELLI]
She's happy for sure!

[GREG]
If it weren't for me
I'd be bettin' on her!

[NORMA, J.D., KELLI, GREG]
Woo-hoo!

[BENNY]
You've got to wonder
What purpose it serves?

[JANIS]
I think she does it
To get on our nerves!
What has she got
To be joyous about?
Let her laugh now
But I'll laugh when she's out!

[NORMA]
Oh yeah!
Do you feel His holy joy?

[ALL but CHRIS and JANIS]
Yes!

[NORMA]
Do you feel His holy joy?

[ALL but CHRIS and JANIS]
Ye-ee-ee-es!

[NORMA & HEATHER]
Do you feel the power
Of His Holiness?
Do you feel His holy joy?

[ALL but CHRIS]
Ye-ee-ee-es!

[NORMA]
I got a powerful feeling!

[ALL but CHRIS]
I feel the joy!

[NORMA]
I feel it ev-e-ry day!

[ALL but CHRIS]
I feel the joy!

[NORMA]
He's gonna lift my soul

[ALL but CHRIS]
I feel the joy!

[NORMA]
And take my pain away!

[ALL but CHRIS]
I feel the joy!

[NORMA]
He comes to me!

[ALL but CHRIS]
I feel the joy!

[NORMA]
When I need Him the most!

[ALL but CHRIS]
I feel the joy!

[NORMA]
I feel the heavenly joy

[ALL but CHRIS]
I feel the joy!

[NORMA]
From my heavenly Ghost!

[ALL but CHRIS]
I feel the joy!

[NORMA]
I ain't tired no more!

[ALL but CHRIS]
I feel the joy!

[NORMA]
I ain't no way sore!

[ALL but CHRIS]
I feel the joy!

[NORMA]
The Devil will never devil

[ALL but CHRIS]
I feel the joy!

[NORMA]
Norma no more!

[ALL but CHRIS]
Norma no more!

[NORMA]
Norma no more!

[ALL but CHRIS]
Norma no more!

[NORMA]
Norma no more!

[ALL but CHRIS]
Norma no more!

[NORMA]
The Devil will never devil

[ALL but CHRIS]
Norma no more!

[NORMA & ENSEMBLE]
Norma no more!

[NORMA]
Woo!

(Exuberantly, they begin to "play" the truck, getting percussive tonalities on the hubcaps, grill, hood, windshield wipers, and occasional horn blast.)

[ALL but CHRIS, NORMA improvises]
I feel the joy!
I feel the joy!
I feel the joy!
I feel the joy!
I feel the joy!
I feel the joy!

[NORMA]
The joy of the Lord!
