inspiration

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 joy comes in the morning.

You have turned my mourning into dancing;
You removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
that my heart may sing praise to You and not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.

— Psalm 30:4-5,11-12
