Ps.136:1  Give thanks unto the Lord; His mercy endureth for ever.
Ezek.36  Ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
Ezek.36  And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field.
Ezek.36  And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by.
Ezek.36  And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden.

 O blessèd is that land of God
 Where saints abide for ever,
 Where golden fields spread far and broad,
 Where flows the crystal river.
 The strains of all its holy throng
 With ours today are blending;
 Thrice blessèd is that harvest song
 Which never hath an ending.
