Ps 30:4–5 — Heavenly Joy in the Midst of Earthly Weeping

    4      Sing praise to the LORD, you saints of His,
            And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.
    5      For His anger is but for a moment,
            His favor is for life;
            Weeping may endure for a night,
            But joy comes in the morning.
Ps 30:4–5

Even under that anger that is for a moment and that in that night when we endure weeping (v5), the believer who has the hope of joy mixed in with his grief is thereby enabled to sing praise and give thanks. He remembers Yahweh's Name; He does not have to wait for heaven to have it.
