And behold, Jesus met them
and greeted them. And they came up and took hold of His feet and worshiped Him.
Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!”
You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness,
You heard that I said to you, ‘I go away, and I will come to you.’ If you loved Me, you would have rejoiced because I go to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.
But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.
1 Peter 1:8
though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory,
