They sang together by course in praising and giving thanks unto the Lord; because He is good, for His mercy endureth forever toward Israel. And all the people shouted with a great shout, when they praised the Lord, because the foundation of the house of the Lord was laid. (Ezra 3:11)
The people shouted with a loud shout, and the noise was heard afar off. (Ezra 3:13)
The Lord is risen; the Lord is gone before; We long to see Him and to sin no more; The Lord is risen; our triumph-shout shall be, “Thou hast prevailed! Thy people, Lord, are free!”
The kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field. (Matt. 13:44)
Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned. (Song of Sol. 8:7)
The Son — He left God’s throne above (So free, so infinite His grace!), Emptied Himself, and then in love Bled for our lost, our ruined race: ’Tis mercy, all beyond our thought, That us to God in Jesus brought.

I stretch forth my hands unto Thee: my soul thirsteth after Thee, as a thirsty land. Selah. (Psa. 143:6)
Then came a day in my journey drear When I sank on the weary road, And there fell a shadow across the waste — The shade of the wings of God; The shadow solemn and dark and still Lay cool on the purple sand; The shadow deep of a mighty rock In a weary, thirsty land.
That in the dispensation of the fullness of times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in Him: in whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of Him who worketh all things after the counsel of His own will: that we should be to the praise of His glory. (Eph. 1:10‑12)
The work which His goodness began, The arm of His strength will complete; His promise is Yea and Amen, And never was forfeited yet: Things future, nor things that are now, Nor all things below nor above, Can make Him His purpose forego, Or sever our souls from His love.
He brought the bullock for the sin offering: and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the bullock for the sin offering. (Lev. 8:14)
We were reconciled to God by the death of His Son. (Rom. 5:10)
“Complete in Him” at God’s right hand — “He is our peace”; Before the throne we boldly stand — “He is our peace”: The blood-besprinkled mercy-seat, His pierced side, His hands and feet, Proclaim redemption’s work complete — “He is our peace.”
