Song (Work in progress)
|By:||Sing the KJV|
62For Zions sake will I not hold my peace,
and for Jerusalems sake I will not rest,
until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness,
and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth.
2And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness,
and all kings thy glory:
and thou shalt be called by a new name,
which the mouth of the Lord shall name.
3Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord,
and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.
4Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken;
neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate:
but thou shalt be called Hephzi-bah,
and thy land Beulah:
for the Lord delighteth in thee,
and thy land shall be married.
5For as a young man marrieth a virgin,
so shall thy sons marry thee:
and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride,
so shall thy God rejoice over thee.
6I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem,
which shall never hold their peace day nor night:
ye that make mention of the Lord, keep not silence,
7and give him no rest, till he establish,
and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
8The Lord hath sworn by his right hand,
and by the arm of his strength,
Surely I will no more give thy corn to be meat for thine enemies;
and the sons of the stranger shall not drink thy wine,
for the which thou hast laboured:
9but they that have gathered it shall eat it, and praise the Lord;
and they that have brought it together shall drink it in the courts of my holiness.
10Go through, go through the gates;
prepare ye the way of the people;
cast up, cast up the highway;
gather out the stones;
lift up a standard for the people.
11Behold, the Lord hath proclaimed unto the end of the world,
Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh;
behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.
12And they shall call them,
The holy people, The redeemed of the Lord:
and thou shalt be called,
Sought out, A city not forsaken.
