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.
