sanctuary to see Your strength and glory, for Your favor to be poured upon me.
O God in
Zion, I wait before You in silent praise and because You answer prayer, all
mankind will come with their request. You are the only hope for mankind. You
formed the mountains by Your mighty strength. You quiet the raging oceans and
all the worlds clamor. You water the earth to make it fertile-Your river’s will
never run dry – all the world shouts with joy, and sing- Sing to the Lord, sing
of His glorious name. O God how great is Your power!

shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. See,
darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD
rises upon you and his glory appears over you.
The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the
brightness of the moon shine on you, for the LORD will be your everlasting
light, and your God will be your glory
Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to
preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to
proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners
to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn, and
provide for those who grieve in Zion— to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of
praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of
righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.
