The Spirit Anoints

Isaiah 61:1-3

The year of the Lord's favour

1. The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
because the Lord has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the broken-hearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,
2. to proclaim the year of the Lord's favour
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
3. and provide for those who grieve in Zion -
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes, the oil of joy
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 splendour.
