Is.51:7a  Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness;
Is.51:6  Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke,
and the earth shall wax old like a garment,...but my salvation shall be for ever.
Is.25:9b  Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the Lord; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
I Cor.15:55  O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
I Cor.15:54b  Death is swallowed up in victory.
I Cor.15:57  Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Alleluia! Amen.
