They shall see the glory of the Lord,
The majesty of our God.
Strengthen the weak hands and make firm the feeble knees,
say to those who have an anxious heart:
Be strong; Fear not. Behold, your God will come with vengeance with the recompense of God. He will come and save you.
Then, the eyes of the blind shall be opened,
and the ears of the deaf unstopped;
then shall the lame man leap like a deer
and the tongue of the mute leap for joy.
For waters break forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert; the burning sand shall become a pool, and the thirsty ground, springs of water…
and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called
the Way of Holiness.
