God is BEAUTIFUL-- He possesses qualities that bring intense pleasure and deep satisfaction to those who behold him.
In that day the Branch of the LORD will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the land will be the pride and glory of the survivors in Israel.
One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.
From Zion, perfect in beauty, God shines forth.
God is BOUNTIFUL-- He is easily able to provide an abundance for his people, to dispense more than enough. He does not skimp or stretch to make ends meet, but generously showers us with gracious blessings.
How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!
People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
They feast on the abundance of your house;
you give them drink from your river of delights.
For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light we see light.
You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance.
They will come and shout for joy on the heights of Zion; they will rejoice in the bounty of the LORD— the grain, the new wine and the olive oil, the young of the flocks and herds. They will be like a well-watered garden, and they will sorrow no more.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
