Sing for joy

Blessed as it is to see the putting away of sin, yet it is a blessedness that yields tears rather than song. But when we see not only sin put away, but the very people who had sinned brought nigh to God, brought into His favour, set down before the throne as sons “accepted in the Beloved,” oh, it is this that causes the heart to sing for joy; and "the joy of the Lord is our strength."

Show me a joyless Christian and I will show you a powerless Christian.

But one who knows and enjoys his acceptance in the Beloved, one who knows something of what Christ is to God, and knows that even such is he to God, such an one has the secret of a peace, a gladness, a power that can sustain amid temptation and sorrow, and give victory over death and the tomb.
