Quotes about Joy to Uplift You

neither shall fruit be in the vines;
the labour of the olive shall fail,
and the fields shall yield no meat;

and there shall be no herd in the stalls:
Yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
I will joy in the God of my salvation.

at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
