The First Song of Isaiah

The First Song of Isaiah

Surely, it is God who saves me;

   I will trust in him and not be afraid.

For the Lord is my stronghold and my sure defense,

   and he will be my Savior.

Therefore you shall draw water with rejoicing

   from the springs of salvation.

And on that day you shall say,

   Give thanks to the Lord and call upon his Name;

Make his deeds known among the peoples;

   see that they remember that his Name is exalted.

Sing the praises of the Lord, for he has done great things,

   and this is known in all the world.

Cry aloud, in habitants of Zion, ring out your joy,

   for the great one in the midst of you is the Holy One of Israel.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
