The spirit of the Lord God is upon me
Because the Lord has anointed me.
He has sent me to bring glad tidings to the poor,
To heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And release to the prisoners,
To announce a year of favor from the Lord
And a day of vindication by our God,
And a day of vindication by our God.
So will the Lord God let justice and praise,
Justice and praise, justice and praise,
So will the Lord God let justice and praise
Spring up before all the nations.
I rejoice heartily in the Lord;
In the Lord is the joy of my soul.
For he has clothed me with a robe of salvation
And wrapped me in a mantle of justice,
Like a bridegroom adorned with a diadem,
Like a bride bedecked with her jewels.
As the earth springs forth its plants
And a garden makes its growth spring up,
And a garden makes its growth spring up.
