My beloved responded and said to me, “Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come along. For behold, the winter is past, The rain is over and gone.”
~Song of Solomon 2:10-11~
I will extol you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up
and have not let my foes rejoice over me.
O Lord my God, I cried to you for help,
and you have healed me.
O Lord, you have brought up my soul from Sheol;
you restored me to life from among those who go down to the pit.
Sing praises to the Lord, O you his saints,
and give thanks to his holy name.
For his anger is but for a moment,
and his favor is for a lifetime.
