One: I will praise God with all I have, because God has lifted me up.
Many: We have cried to God for help, and God has healed us.
One: When we are at the lowest point, in the absolute depths, God has restored us to life.
Many: Weeping may linger for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
One: Do not be silent; let us praise God!
All: We will give thanks to God forever.
