Returning to the Ruins
The Spirit of God is with us
To bring good news to the poor;
To bind up the brokenhearted with His love;
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison gates
To those who are bound;
For we are living in the year of the Lord's favor,
To comfort all who mourn;
To give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes,
The oil of gladness instead of mourning,
The garment of praise instead of a faint spirit;
That they may be called oaks of righteousness,
A planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.
We shall build up the ancient ruins;
We shall raise up the former devastations;
And repair the ruined cities,
The devastations of many generations.
Sarah Camille Soltani Icely
