“Joy”
Puritan Prayers and Devotions

Let my heart leap towards the eternal sabbath,
where th
e work of redemption, sanctification, preservation, glorification is finished and perfected for ever,where thou wilt rejoice over me with 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!
Oh 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.
