There is no real opposite of "rejoice" because you can't un-rejoice. The opposite of rejoicing is really to be depressed about or to be under-whelmed by or to be indifferent to - ignore etc.
So the true opposite is not really possible.

Most attempts point towards mourning or grieving someone's failures but failure isn't a loss as such it's only a lack of success. So we can't really use grieve or mourn. I'm working on this one! If I can solve it I'll put another follow up in.
