Blessed Easter season to you and to all,

Psalm 97 – 1   The LORD is king! Let the earth rejoice;
let the many coastlands be glad! …
6   The heavens proclaim his righteousness;
and all the peoples behold his glory. …
11  Light dawns for the righteous,
and joy for the upright in heart.
12  Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous,
and give thanks to his holy name!
