Sing, O heav'ns; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for the Lord hath comforted His people, and will have mercy upon His afflicted.
Isaiah 49:13

He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of His people shall He take away from off all the earth.
Lo, this is our God; we have waited for Him, and he will save us: this is the Lord; we have waited for Him, we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.
Isaiah 25:8-9

For His salvation is nigh them that fear Him, that glory may dwell in our land.
Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. Truth shall flourish out of the earth, And righteousness hath looked down from heaven.
Psalm 85:9-11

[Sing, O heav'ns; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for the Lord hath comforted His people, and will have mercy upon His afflicted.]

Thy seat, O God, endureth for ever: the sceptre of Thy kingdom is a right sceptre!
Psalm 45:6

Amen.
