English.png English text

Sing, sing O Heavens and be ye joyful,
O Earth, O Earth, yea, be ye joyful;
The feet of those who are in the east shall be established;
O Earth, O Earth, yea, be ye joyful.
Others may forget, yet I will not forget thee
For I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands.

They shall not hunger nor thirst, the sun shan't smite them
For I that hath mercy on them shall lead them;
Yea, by the springs of water shall I guide them
And my highways shall be exalted.
Others may forget, yet I will not forget thee
For I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands.

Break forth into singing, o ye mountains,
For they shall be smitten no more;
For I the Lord hath comforted all my people
and I will have mercy upon mine afflicted.
Others may forget, yet I will not forget thee
For I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands.

--from Isaiah 49
