                                            “He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with him, and he began to be sorrowful and troubled. Then he said to them, ‘My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow, to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.’” Matthew 26:36-38

“The joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10

“Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee, God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee, opening to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness; drive the dark of doubt away;
Giver of immortal gladness, fill us with the light of day!”   Henry J. van Dyke, 1907
