Ps.107:8  Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
Ps.126:5  They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
Ps.126:6  He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.
Ps.147:7  Sing unto the Lord with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God:
Ps.147:8  Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.
