When we look at verse 13 we see JOY and PEACE together. They come together from faith and trust in believing in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Our Precious Lord is also called the God of Hope. Because, by raising his Son from the dead, and bringing life and immortality to light by the gospel, he hath presented to us the most glorious object of hope possible to be presented to us; and because, by adopting believers into his family, regenerating them by his grace, making them his heirs through salvation, and giving them an earnest of their future inheritance in their hearts, he hath begotten them again to a lively hope of an incorruptible inheritance. He hath begotten us his children to a lively hope of an incorruptible inheritance, an exceeding great and eternal weight of glory. He fills us with all joy — True spiritual joy, at all times, and in all things; joy, and peace. Remember first we need to become his child.

Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee,
God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee,
Praising Thee, their 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!
All Thy works with joy surround Thee,
Earth and heaven reflect Thy rays,
Stars and angels sing around Thee,
Center of unbroken praise:
Field and forest, vale and mountain,
Blooming meadow, flashing sea,
Chanting bird and flowing fountain
Call us to rejoice in Thee.
Thou art giving and forgiving,
Ever blessing, ever blest,
Well-spring of the joy of living,
Ocean-depth of happy rest!
Thou our Father, Christ our Brother,
All who live in love are Thine:
Teach us how to love each other,
Lift us to the joy divine.
Mortals, join the mighty chorus,
Which the morning stars began;
Father-love is reigning o’er us,
Brother-love binds man to man.
Ever singing march we onward,
Victors in the midst of strife,
Joyful music leads us sunward
In the triumph song of life.
Love and Prayers
