Isaiah 60:1–6, reinterpreted

Isaiah 60:1–6

retold by Deborah

Come out of hiding! Show yourself! Let your light shine; for the Lord is with us, the radiance of God has come to us.

People stumble through life, blinded by confusion, hatred, and fear; but holy wisdom will illuminate you like the sunrise, and divine compassion warm your heart like the noonday sun.

Your joy will draw others to you, your courage will strengthen them, your faith will inspire them. You will be a shining bright star on a dark and dismal night.

Look around and see the many lost and lonely who are searching; they wander far and wide, seeking they know not what.

Open your heart and let love stream in, then let it pour forth like a mighty stream. Your joy will be complete, for love is powerful and never-ending: Life’s origin and Source that cannot be depleted.

Love is greater than all earthly riches: against such a treasure nothing else can compare.
