““In your presence,” says David, “is the fullness of joy.” (Ps. 16:11)

And this joy shall arise chiefly from the vision of God, and partly from the sight of all the holy angels, and blessed souls of just and perfect men, who are in bliss and glory with them; but especially from the blissful sight of Jesus, the Mediator of the New Testament, our Emmanuel, God made man.

The sight of Jesus will be the chief cause of our bliss and joy.”
