喜びに沸く = Excited with joy
喜びに輝く = Sparkle with joy
Not sure if this に is related to these other sentence I will give.
大きな音に驚いてしまった = Surprised by/from the big sound
子供たちの上手な歌に感心した = Moved by the children's good singing
試験の結果を心配していたが、「よくできていましたよ。」という先生の言葉に安心した = I was worried about the result of the exam, but I was relieved by the teachers words "-----"
As you can see, all these sentences uses noun + ni + verb.
It's a common structure to see, and the verbs usually are related to some kind of feeling/emotion.
Not sure if this is any help, but I am sure someone who can explain it better will come along.

I take 連用形 as nouns in English
喜びに輝く = Sparkle with joy,
maybe It's right, with.... is adverbial,right?
