“I will recount the gracious deeds of the Lord,
the praiseworthy acts of the Lord,
because of all that the Lord has done for us,
and the great favour to the house of Israel
that he has shown them according to his mercy
according to the abundance of his steadfast love.” (v. 7)


Isaiah 62:1-12

Because my heart yearns for Jerusalem, I cannot remain silent.
I will not stop praying for her
until her righteousness shines like the dawn,
and her salvation blazes like a burning torch.” (v. 1) (NLT)
