Psalm 2

Many waters cannot quench love. (Song of Songs 8:7)
"He whom they sought was dead, but their hope of Resurrection was not quenched....They departed with joy, yet full of fear. Is this in Scripture? Yes, the second Psalm, prophetic of the passion of Christ, says: 'Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice before him with trembling'; rejoice, to be sure, for the Lord who has risen, but with trembling, because of the earthquake, and the angel who appeared like lightning." -- St. Cyril of Jerusalem.
