"The Joy of Jesus" was released Sept. 6.
Twenty years after the tragic death of the beloved and talented musician, the world is given the gift of a never-before-released song by Rich Mullins.
“The Joy of Jesus” is a simple, beautiful reminder of the blessings God brings.
The original, live demo is incorporated in the new song, and singers Matt Maher, Mac Powell and Ellie Holcomb lend their voices for the more polished re-working. Hearing Mullins’ voice and influence in the short-but-sweet worship song evokes memories of Mullins, his music, his lyrics and the legacy he leaves – a ragamuffin pointing to the only savior he knows.
The new single will make listeners want to revisit the timeless songs that have encouraged, challenged, comforted and convicted so many.
