What is true joy or hope?

These are some spoken lyrics from a band that I like called Wolves at the Gate from their song East to West.

What is true joy or hope? Where can it be found? Is it a promise of golden streets? Is it in escaping the fires of hell? No. All things are worthless in view of the surpassing value of simply knowing God and being known by Him. Oh, that I may know him! To one day see the Savior who purchased my life by His very own blood, to see the King who suffered to die for a sinner like me..."
