Thou hast turned my mourning into dancing for me

Thou hast turned my mourning into dancing for me;
  Thou hast put off my sackcloth;
Thou hast turned my mourning into dancing for me,
  And girded me with gladness;
To the end my glory may sing praise unto Thee,
  And not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto Thee forever.

Psa 30:11-12

You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;

You have loosened my sackcloth

And girded me with rejoicing,

That my glory might sing psalms to You and not be silent.

O Jehovah my God, I will praise You forever.

For Yichien, my sister in Christ: praise the Lord Spirit that He has comforted you. May the joy of the Lord remain in your mingled spirit each moment of your life unto eternity. Just want to share with you that one of the most favorite sung hymns, Blessed Assurance, Jesus is Mine; the writer Fanny Crosby, had your experience, too. She wrote this hymn, after she received the comfort from the Lord Spirit. May we Love our Lord Jesus more and more each day. The Lord loves us beyond our knowledge. Love you in Christ. Amen.

I heard this song performed many years ago by Willie Hanson of Australia. His father wrote it. When he was a young man living at home his mother passed away. The household was in sad and in mourning. Heaviness and grief. And one night he awoke in the middle of the night with his father playing the piano accordion to this tune "..thou hast turned my mourning into dancing for me....." and singing this joyful song to the Lord.

Always has been one of my favorites. It is very powerful.
