On This Day of Joy and Gladness

Doctrine and Covenants 101:36

Wherefore, fear not even unto death; 
for in this world your joy is not full, 
but in me your joy is full.

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; 
the which when a man hath found, 
he hideth, 
and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, 
and buyeth that field.

Matthew 13:44

Jesu, joy of man's desiring,
Holy wisdom, love most bright;
Drawn by Thee, our souls aspiring
Soar to uncreated light.

Word of God, our flesh that fashioned,
With the fire of life impassioned,
Striving still to truth unknown,
Soaring, dying round Thy throne.

Through the way where hope is guiding,
Hark, what peaceful music rings;
Where the flock, in Thee confiding,
Drink of joy from deathless springs.

Theirs is beauty's fairest pleasure;
Theirs is wisdom's holiest treasure.
Thou dost ever lead Thine own
In the love of joys unknown.
