WARNING: thread creep!

When I was a Boy Scout (longer ago than recorded history), I was on a Scout camping trip, and there was singing around the campfire. The Scoutmaster sang a version of this song (a more religious version, I gather). His rendition included a passage that I remember as:

I've got the peace a pass that makes the thunder
down in my heart! Down in my heart! ...(etc.)

Since then, I have seen lyrics that included the passage "I've got the peace that passeth understanding ...", but I have not found a version with the words that the Scoutmaster sang.

An obvious answer to this is "Don - you idiot - you either misunderstood what he sang, or are mis-remembering it now, or both!" Maybe. But my memory of at least "... that makes the thunder ..." is quite clear.

Joy Joy

I’ve got a joy, joy, joy, joy
Down in my heart
Down in my heart
Down in my heart
I’ve got a joy, joy, joy, joy
Down in my heart
Down in my heart today

I’ve got the greatest, grandest feeling
This feeling’s really here to stay
And it’s a joy that needs revealing
So I just want to say

I’ve got a satisfact’ry situation
Down in my heart
Down in my heart
Down in my heart
I’ve got a satisfact’ry situation
Down in my heart
Down in my heart today

Bob Gibson! That's where I heard that version. Are there additional verses he did to that?

It's a Sunday school song. Here's a completely unsatisfactory video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8nS_CxvLRCo (C/P it: the blue clicky is taking forever.)

There's a bridge to the song that the video omits. I'm working on it...

Looking for version of "Joy joy joy joy deep in my heart" from folk singer, I believe from the 60s, with a verse about "ive got a satisfactory situation..." great song - this version, as I recall is fairly non-religious. who sang it and what are the exact lyrics? thanks! steve
