Ten Thousand Joys



























O my God,
Thou fairest, greatest, first of all objects, my heart admires, adores, loves thee, for my little vessel is as full as it can be, and I would pour out all that fullness before thee in ceaseless flow.
When I think upon and converse with thee ten thousand delightful thoughts spring up, ten thousand sources of pleasure are unsealed, ten thousand sources of pleasure are unsealed, ten thousand refreshing joys spread over my heart, crowding into every moment of happiness.
--Valley of Vision, a collection of Puritan prayers


"Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good and His love endures forever."  Psalm 107:1

We used to close all of our Xmas concerts at moody with a song called "ten thousand joys.". I wonder if the reference comes from here...
