Bible: Isaiah 40:9-11

40:9 Go up on a high mountain, O herald Zion!

Shout out loudly, O herald Jerusalem! 1 

Shout, don’t be afraid!

Say to the towns of Judah,

Here is your God!

40:10 Look, the sovereign Lord comes as a victorious warrior; 2 

his military power establishes his rule. 3 

Look, his reward is with him;

his prize goes before him. 4 

40:11 Like a shepherd he tends his flock;

he gathers up the lambs with his arm;

he carries them close to his heart; 5 

he leads the ewes along.
