Sorrow is better than laughter; for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made whole.

2 Corinthians 7:9-11

Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance; for ye were made sorry by God that ye might suffer no loss by us. For godly sorrow works repentance to salvation, of which there is no need to repented; but the sorrow of the world works death. For behold this same thing, that when ye were made sorry by God, what carefulness it wrought in you, what clearing of yourselves, what indignation, what fear, what vehement desire, what zeal, what vindication! In all things ye have shown yourselves to be clean in this matter.

Luke 6:21

Blessed are those that hunger now, for ye shall be filled. Blessed are those that weep now, for ye shall laugh.

Isaiah 35:10

And the ransomed of the LORD shall return and come to Zion with songs; and everlasting joy shall be upon their heads: they shall retain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
