Whom having not seen, you love; into whom though not seeing Him at present, yet believing, you exult with joy unspeakable and full of glory
— 1 Peter 1:8
Our burden in offering this CD to the Lord is that, by listening to and enjoying these hymns and spiritual songs, not only many young people would be led to the Lord, but also that we, as young people, would be living a Christian life that is full of joy. To live such a life we must "keep the feast" (1 Corinthians 5:7) by enjoying our precious Lord in His Word. When the children of Israel returned from captivity to rebuild the temple, Ezra strengthened them by reading the Word of God to them. Then he said unto them: "Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength." — Nehemiah 8:10. Our desire and hope is that the joy of the Lord would become the strength of all who listen to this CD.
