A day of returning, a day to remember:
the years of their exile were over and gone,
a day of thanksgiving for such preservation,
a day for rejoicing, a day to move on.

And now they would settle to re-build a kingdom,
to value tradition, to start a new life.
For now they were feasting with joy in communion
with God who walked with them from danger and strife.

Verses 3-4 follow
