Consider the lyrics to“Joy to Be” By Citizens:

“O the joy to be, joy to know
It’s when I decrease, You fill up my soul
What a joy to see, joy to hold
It’s when You increase, I want nothing more

Open my hands, humble my heart
All that I have is Yours
Color my prayers, widen my eyes
Wash me in glorious light

O the joy to be, joy to know
It’s when I decrease, You fill up my soul
What a joy to see, joy to hold
It’s when You increase, I want nothing more

Hasten my ears, bridle my tongue
Focus my heart to hear
Settle my pace, purge me of pride
Again and again, You provide

Oh the joy to be, joy to know
It’s when I decrease, You fill up my soul
What a joy to see, joy to hold
It’s when You increase, I want nothing more”
