  1. Such a beautiful song. It is timeless. It is gospel, not hip-hop dance club music with gospel lyrics. This song is calming me on tonight at 11:13pm, as so many things are swirling around me – enough to make someone fall out on the floor from stress! BUT GOD! I'm working on some administrative tasks right now and the YouTube window was open and this song was on auto-pause, so I just pressed it to listen, and this is the 2nd listen. Thank you Richard Smallwood for the best reminder to all of us, in pure words, that all that's good and perfect comes from the Lord. We just need to rest in his assurances and trust Him, in the good times and in the challenging times. Jesus is truly the center of my Joy!

  2. I don't care how many times I hear this song, it brings me to tears, God has brought me through homelessness ,and many abusive relationships. I have only Jesus to thank for my life,my lessons and I praise his Holy name Lord id be nothing without you and I mean nothing, Thank you Lord.

  3. Marvelous and gloriously song in my heart every day. He's my hope for tomorrow my bright and morning star๐ŸŒŸ Richard Smallwood vocals so powerful annointing amen.
    #Thank you sir.

  5. 2019 This has been my testimony since I was a little girl, it has gotten my through the toughest times in my life, because Jesus is what matters to me, HE is the center of my joy, HE's my EVERYTHING. Amen. Thank you LORD.

  6. No matter how many say our Lord n Savour Jesus Christ was only a prophet how come anyone who hears this song ..heart is moved n tears flow none stop !!

  7. I was just about to listen to the song it's almost imperative that I point out that Hulk Hogan's real name ain't Hulk Hogan, Tina Turner's real name is not Tina Turner… please Richard get a stage name. Do you know what's the nickname for Richard???? It's Dick!!!
    Dickie Smallwood I mean really come on.

  8. This song gets me everytime, tears flowing thank you so much Jesus for all I have, and all I don't have, I pray that this song will touch someone's life today,that they will give their life to the Lord,live in Faith and trust Jesus for everything, I am speaking from experience my life has not been the same since I gave my heart and soul to the Lord on May 9TH 2012, Amen giving you all the glory Lord all the glory,I would never have made it this far without you. Amen

  9. My cuzn sung this song he cudnt touch rev. Smallwood but he wuz close. #singingrunsinmyfamily๐Ÿ™

  10. One of my "live" favorites. God bless these beautiful people. Some have gone on to glory but that's alright. Love this song from Mr. Smallwood. He makes that piano play praise to God.

  11. This song just won't leave me, I sing this song I eat this song I work this song.. this is such a beautiful song keeps me going every day of my life, Richard sir nobody can sing this song like you do. A true man of God… May God bless you sir!

  12. Needed to hear this after a very tragically sad incident involving a mother and her 2 innocent adult children, who perished this week. The devil was busy. Prayers to the family and friends.

  13. This was my wedding song in 2014 and my dad gave me away…He is deceased as of Dec. 2018..this song will always be my favorite! JESUS IS THE CENTER OF MY JOY!!

  14. Amazing does not properly express the anointing on this song…the organ in back sets it off and brings an old soul church sound to the mix..bravo

  15. This is my favorite song my fight song when it looks like things aren't getting better I put this song on and worship and praise

  16. JESUS YOU ARE the Center of my joy
    โ˜๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ•Š๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ

  17. The young today have no clue what such a song means. Hopefully those who do, carry this on in " the name of Yeshua aka Jesus "

  18. โ€œWhen Iโ€™ve lost my direction, you are my compass.โ€ That part gets me!
    Then, when he says, โ€œYou are why I find pleasure for the simple things in life.โ€, I lose it everytime.

  19. This is pure singing, none of that extra stuff. I LOVE IT! Toward the end when they start to sing "Ahhhhh" can someone tell me who the gentlemen with the glasses is?

  20. I love this! I remember singing this song with Richard and my choir in Hawaii years ago. Is that Tondra Penn near the end of the video?

  21. This is one of the most beautiful songs! This is my go to when I am going through,but still want to give God, the praise. Jesus is most definitely the center of my joy๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพโ˜๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ

  22. He's my;
    Hope
    Joy
    Peace
    Mind Regulator
    Strength
    Rock
    Water when Thirsty
    COMFORT
    Problem Solver
    My way maker
    HE'S MY EVERY EVERY EVERY EVERYTHING!

  23. Yes LORD JESUS, YOU ARE THE center of my Joy.
    Sadly, Singers like these are very few these days. Many have been taking over by the desire FOR FAME, and FORTUNE. LORD JESUS, HELP US!

  24. You just donโ€™t understand, or maybe you do๐Ÿ˜€, I would rather watch this any day over the Gaither Homecoming episodes!!
    Heart and soul, sing it Richard !!
    I know I saw one of the Oโ€™neil twins back there !!!
