Well Said: Our tongues sang for joy

When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion,
then we thought we were dreaming.
Our mouths were filled with laughter;
our tongues sang for joy.

Psalm 126
Isn't this the perfect description of the feeling that sweeps over you when God does something wonderful for you?

I love the way that Hebrew poetry uses the second line of a couplet not for rhyming but for a second way to emphasize what they are saying.

"Mouths filled with laughter, tongues singing for joy." Yes.
