The joy and gratitude voiced in the Holy Scriptures have rung throughout the ages. They are the expression of those who trusted in God. One may think that those who admonish us lived in prosperous and peaceful conditions, but the record shows that this was not always so. Many mournful complaints, as well as songs of praise to God, are to be found in the Psalms. Discordant circumstances, however, did not prevent the Psalmist from expressing joy and hope in God, to whom he turned for comfort and release from difficulties. Hear his thankfulness to God and love for all mankind, when he writes, "Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul."

The words of Christ Jesus, the greatest expounder of Truth the world has ever known, must have sounded comfortingly in the ears of his disciples when he said, "These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full."
