Psalm text (Is 12:2-6)

Cry out with joy and gladness: for among you is the great and Holy One of Israel.

Truly, God is my salvation,
I trust, I shall not fear.
For the Lord is my strength, my song,
he became my saviour.
With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.

Give thanks to the Lord, give praise to his name!
make his mighty deeds known to the peoples!
Declare the greatness of his name.

Sing a psalm to the Lord for he has done glorious deeds,
make them known to all the earth!
People of Zion, sing and shout for joy
for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.

Gospel Verse (Is 61:1)

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me; he sent me to bring Good News to the poor.

Psalm text (Isa 12:2-3, 4, 5-6)

Cry out with joy and gladness for among you is the great and holy one of Israel.

God indeed is my savior;
I am confident and unafraid.
My strength and my courage is the Lord
and He has been my Savior.
With joy you will draw water
at the fountain of salvation.

Give thanks to the Lord, acclaim His name;
among the nations make known his deeds,
proclaim how exalted is His name.

Sing praise to the Lord for His glorious achievement;
let this be known throughout all the earth.
Shout with exultation, O city of Zion,
for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel!
