Dhammapada 18 [Khuddaka Nikaya]

I- Yamakavagga, The Pairs
13- Sumanadevi Vatthu
Idha nandati pecca nandati,
katapunno ubhayattha nandati;
punnam me katanti nandati,
bhiyyo nandati suggatim gato.
18: Here he is happy, hereafter he is happy; one who performs meritorious deeds is happy in both existences. Happily he exclaims: I have done meritorious deeds." He is happier still when he is reborn in a higher world (suggati).
