HOLY GRIEF - Isaiah 61:1-3

  • Isaiah 61:1-3


    The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,

    Because the Lord has anointed me

    To bring good news to the afflicted;

    He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,

    To proclaim liberty to captives

    And freedom to prisoners;

    To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord

    And the day of vengeance of our God;

    To comfort all who mourn,

    To grant those who mourn in Zion,

    Giving them a garland instead of ashes,

    The oil of gladness instead of mourning,

    The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting.

    So they will be called oaks of righteousness,

    The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.
