And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way.

2 Samuel 1:19
Job 29:11,12,14
Philippians 4:8
Psalm 103:17; 112:6; 
Daniel 12:3

How doth the city sit solitary, that was full of people! how is she become as a widow! she that was great among the nations, and princess among the provinces, how is she become tributary!

The ways of Zion do mourn, because none come to the solemn feasts: all her gates are desolate: her priests sigh, her virgins are afflicted, and she is in bitterness.

10 The elders of the daughter of Zion sit upon the ground, and keep silence: they have cast up dust upon their heads; they have girded themselves with sackcloth: the virgins of Jerusalem hang down their heads to the ground.

19 The beauty of Israel is slain upon thy high places: how are the mighty fallen!

11 When the ear heard me, then it blessed me; and when the eye saw me, it gave witness to me:

12 Because I delivered the poor that cried, and the fatherless, and him that had none to help him.

14 I put on righteousness, and it clothed me: my judgment was as a robe and a diadem.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

17 But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children’s children;

Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.

And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

The Ways of Zion Do Mourn / Funeral Anthem for Queen Caroline, composed in 1737 by George Frideric Handel (1685-1759)
