Thank you, O God, for joy.
Joy that overcomes all else.
Joy that is more powerful than the darkest powers.
Joy that is more abundant than the waters in the seas.
Joy that is mine.

Quiet Spaces (p.44) (Copyright © 2002)
Whoever is wise, let him give heed… let men consider the steadfast love of the LORD.
Go your way, eat the fat and drink sweet wine and send portions to him for whom nothing is prepared… and do not be grieved, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.
