Isaiah 12:1-6

  • Song of thanksgiving (1-6)

    • “Jah Jehovah is my strength” (2)

12  In that day you will certainly say: “I thank you, O Jehovah,For although you were angry with me,Your anger gradually subsided, and you comforted me.+   Look! God is my salvation.+ I will trust and feel no dread;+For Jah* Jehovah is my strength and my might,And he has become my salvation.”+   With rejoicing you will draw waterFrom the springs of salvation.+   And in that day you will say: “Give thanks to Jehovah, call on his name,Make his deeds known among the peoples!+ Declare that his name is exalted.+   Sing praises* to Jehovah,+ for he has done magnificent things.+ Let this be made known in all the earth.   Cry out and shout for joy, you inhabitant* of Zion,For great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.”
