Great Joy In Christ

And it came to pass that
when they had knelt upon the ground,
Jesus groaned within himself, and said: Father,
I am troubled because of the wickedness
of the people of the house of Israel.

And when he had said these words,
he himself also knelt upon the earth;
and behold he prayed unto the Father,
and the things which he prayed cannot be written,
and the multitude did bear record who heard him.

And after this manner do they bear record:
The eye hath never seen,
neither hath the ear heard, before,
so great and marvelous things as we saw
and heard Jesus speak unto the Father;

And no tongue can speak, neither
can there be written by any man,
neither can the hearts of men conceive
so great and marvelous things
as we both saw and heard Jesus speak;
and no one can conceive of the joy
which filled our souls at the time
we heard him pray for us unto the Father.

And it came to pass that when Jesus
had made an end of praying unto the Father,
he arose; but so great was the joy
of the multitude that they were overcome.

And it came to pass that Jesus
spake unto them, and bade them arise.

And they arose from the earth, and he said unto them:
Blessed are ye because of your faith.

And now behold, my joy is full.
