How precious is Thy lovingkindness, O God! and the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Thy wings.

How hast thou multiplied thy mercy, O God! so the children of men shall trust in the shelter of thy wings.

Ps35:7  How you have multiplied your mercy, O God! And so the sons of men will hope under the cover of your wings.

They are abundantly satisfied with the fatness of Thy house; and Thou makest them drink of the river of Thy pleasures.

They shall be fully satisfied with the fatness of thine house; and thou shalt cause them to drink of the full stream of thy delights.
