Joy

A responsive reading including:
Psalms 4:7, 5:11, 9:2, 15:8-9, 19:18, 28:7, 30:11-2, 32:11, 35:9, 40:16, 42:4, 51:12, 63:5, 85:6, 100:1-2, 104:34, 119:14, 119:111

You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound.

But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.

I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.

I have set the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure.

The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes.

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.

You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever.

Rejoice in the Lord and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart!

Then my soul will rejoice in the Lord and delight in his salvation.

But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who love your salvation always say, “The Lord be exalted!”

These things I remember as I pour out my soul: how I used to go with the multitude, leading the procession to the house of God, with shouts of joy and thanksgiving
among the festive throng.

Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.

Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.

May my meditation be pleasing to him, as I rejoice in the Lord.

I rejoice in following your statutes as one rejoices in great riches.

Your statutes are my heritage forever; they are the joy of my heart.
