Words of Joy is a collection of five Quenya translations of Catholic prayers. The title Words of Joy is taken from a letter by Tolkien to his son Christopher (see The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien (1981), Letter 54).

This part of the collection includes:

Átaremma (Pater Noster)

Aia María (Ave Maria)

Alcar i Ataren (Gloria Patri)

Numerous versions are reproduced, including two manuscript pages.
