Get up and dance, my friend!
God loves a heart full of joy!
Yes, weep for your sins,
But throw your sorrows to the dogs!
Get up and dance, my friend,
And give it all you've got.
You know the Lord loves a cheerful giver!
Don't hold back! Don't hold back!
Despair is the devil's coin.
To Hell with him, he's too rich!
Worry makes him taller, not you.
So scatter his change on the floor,
And receive the treasure of God.
"By way of trials and sufferings we must purify the divine image in us...for it is by reforging our senses in the furnace of our trials that we free them from defilement and assume our royal dignity. --Abba Philimon
