  1. Joy In Life
    Poet: Frank Dempster Sherman

    It is my joy in life to find
    At every turning of the road,
    The strong arm of a comrade kind
    To help me onward with my load:
    And since I have no gold to give,
    And love alone must make amends,
    My only prayer is, while I live, -
    God make me worthy of my friends!

  2. Spread The Joy
    Poet: Julie Hebert, 2015

    I wished upon a star tonight,
    The one above my tree.
    It brought me so much joy you see,
    It brought it all to me.

    So much joy flows through my veins,
    It's almost spilling out.
    It's time to share this joy with others,
    This I have no doubt.

    If joy is given out to me,
    Through a wishing star.
    It must be meant for more than me,
    Can't be bottled in a jar.

    Share it wide and share it tall,
    Let everyone feel it.
    Let's spread it like a wildfire,
    Bringing life and love with it.

  4. Contentment
    by David Swing

    Let us learn to be content with what we have.
    Let us get rid of our false estimates,
    Set up all the higher ideals -
    A quiet home; vines of our own planting;
    A few books full of the inspiration of a genius;
    A few friends worthy of being loved,
    And able to love us in turn;
    A hundred innocent pleasures that bring no pain or remorse;
    A devotion to the right that will never swerve;
    A simple religion empty of all bigotry,
    Full of trust and hope and love -
    And to such a philosophy this world will give up all the empty joy it has.

  5. Laughing Song
    Poet: William Blake

    When the green woods laugh with the voice of joy.
    And the dimpling stream runs laughing by;
    When the air does laugh with our merry wit.
    And the green hill laughs with the noise of it;

    When the meadows laugh with lively green.
    And the grasshopper laughs in the merry scene;
    When Mary and Susan and Emily
    With their sweet round mouths sing "Ha ha he!"

    When the painted birds laugh in the shade,
    Where our table with cherries and nuts is spread:
    Come live, and be merry, and join with me,
    To sing the sweet chorus of "Ha ha he!"

  7. The Crucible of Life
    Poet: Edgar A Guest

    Sunshine and shadow, blue sky and gray,
    Laughter and tears as we tread on our way;
    Hearts that are heavy, then hearts that are light,
    Eyes that are misty and eyes that are bright;
    Losses and gains in the heat of the strife,
    Each in proportion to round out his life.

    Into the crucible, stirred by the years,
    Go all our hopes and misgivings and fears;
    Glad days and sad days, our pleasures and pains,
    Worries and comforts, our losses and gains.
    Out of the crucible shall there not come
    Joy undefiled when we pour off the scum?

    Out of the sadness and anguish and woe,
    Out of the travail and burdens we know,
    Out of the shadow that darkens the way,
    Out of the failure that tries us to-day,
    Have you a doubt that contentment will come
    When you've purified life and discarded the scum?

    Tinctured with sorrow and flavored with sighs,
    Moistened with tears that have flowed from your eyes;
    Perfumed with sweetness of loves that have died,
    Leavened with failures, with grief sanctified,
    Sacred and sweet is the joy that must come
    From the furnace of life when you've poured off the scum.

  8. life's sweetest joys are hidden in unsubstantial things.  May Riley Smith

  9. Set The World Rejoicing
    Poet Unknown

    There's never a rose in all the world,
    But makes some green spray sweeter;
    There's never a wind in all the sky.
    But makes some bird's wing fleeter.
    There's never a star but brings to heaven
    Some silver radiance tender,
    And never a rosy cloud but helps
    To crown the sunset splendor;
    No robin but may thrill some heart,
    His dawnlike gladness voicing.
    God gives us all some small, sweet way,
    To set the world rejoicing.

  10. Joy
    Poet: Ella Wheeler Wilcox

    My heart is like a little bird
    That sits and sings for very gladness.
    Sorrow is some forgotten word,
    And so, except in rhyme, is sadness.

    The world is very fair to me -
    Such azure skies, such golden weather,
    I'm like a long caged bird set free,
    My heart is lighter than a feather.

    I rise rejoicing in my life;
    I live with love for God and neighbour;
    My days flow on unmarred by strife,
    And sweetened by my pleasant labour.

    O youth! O spring! O happy days,
    Ye are so passing sweet, and tender,
    And while the fleeting season stays,
    I revel care-free, in its splendour.
