Sermon Illustrations on Joy

Creator Spirit, by whose aid

The world’s foundations first were laid,

Come, visit every pious mind;

Come, pour thy joys on humankind;

From sin and sorrow set us free, And make thy temples worthy thee.

John Dryden


Most Holy and Most Gracious God, who turns the shadow of night into morning, satisfy us early with your mercy, that we may rejoice and be glad throughout the entire day. Lift the light of your faith on us; calm every troubled thought; and guide our feet into the way of peace. Perfect your strength in our weakness, and help us to worship you; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Most Holy and Most Gracious God, who turnest the shadow of night into morning, satisfy us early with thy mercy, that we may rejoice and be glad all the day. Lift the light of thy countenance upon us; calm every troubled thought; and guide our feet into the way of peace. Perfect thy strength in our weakness, and help us to worship thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
