There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven ...
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance ...
Sing to the LORD, you saints of His;
praise His holy name.
For His anger lasts only a moment,
but His favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may remain for a night,
but rejoicing comes in the morning.
The LORD is good to all,
And His mercies are over all His works.
All Your works shall give thanks to You, O LORD,
And Your godly ones shall bless You.
Ecclesiastes 3:1,4; Psalm 30:4-5; Psalm 145:9-10
