Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for the Lord hath comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted.
My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the Lord: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.
For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.
All the days of the afflicted are evil: but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast.
The hope of the righteous shall be gladness: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish.
My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed.
I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there: And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
