Thomas Boston on Matthew 25.21 - "Enter thou into the joy of the Lord":

Joy sometimes enters into us now, but has much to do to get access, while we are encompassed with sorrows: but then [at the last day] joy shall not only enter us, but we shall enter into it, and swim for ever in an ocean of joy, where we shall see nothing but joy wherever we turn our eyes.

From Human Nature in its Fourfold State.
