Prosperity Promises - Isaiah Series (23)

Tune: Ode To Joy

('Joyful, joyful, we adore thee')

Isaiah 60 v.18-21


Prosperous Israel's returning

To their land shall be, each thing

Shall be blessed, in peace they shall dwell

And of the Lord's goodness tell

Walls of city called Salvation

An honourable nation

Gates of city shall be called Praise

Joyful songs to the LORD raise


The sun shall no more be their light

Nor the moon shall shine then bright

But the LORD shall unto them be

An everlasting light, see

And their God shall be their glory

Sun not go down, but stay free

Nor moon withdraw, for the LORD shall

Be their e'erlasting light well


And days of their mourning shall be

Ended, now as company

The LORD's presence with them ever

They be forsaken never

They shall be all righteous, holy

Inherit the land plenty

The branch of the LORD's planting, see

His work, all for His glory

      'The sun shall no more be their light
      Nor the moon shall shine then bright'
      I think that is a very relatable description of reality, in any context

        Thanks LB. Though, as I say, their (referring to God's people) sun and moon will shine 'spiritually', as it were.
