Music has provided soothing comfort.
In happy times, in has inspired me to
even higher realms of joy.
In times of loneliness,
it has brought abundant comfort.
Truly, it is a gift of heaven on earth!
You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
you have loosed my sackcloth
and clothed me with gladness,
that I may honorably sing your praise and not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever!
