Joy


"There is no joy like the joy of heaven,
for in that state are no sad divisions,

unchristian quarrels,
contentions, evil designs,
weariness, hunger, cold,
sadness, sin, suffering,
persecutions, toils of duty.

O healthful place where none are sick!

O happy land where all are kings!

O holy assembly where all are priests!

How free a state where none are servants
except to Thee!

Bring me speedily to the land of joy."

- from Puritan Prayers and Devotions
