“These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.
You will show me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
“ For you shall go out with joy,
And be led out with peace;
The mountains and the hills
Shall break forth into singing before you,
And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
And the ransomed of the LORD shall return,
And come to Zion with singing,
With everlasting joy on their heads.
They shall obtain joy and gladness,
And sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
