First Lesson: Isaiah61:1-4, 8-11 Lector: Lois Anderson
1 When the Lord
restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dreamed.
2 Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, The Lord has done great things
3 The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
4 Restore our fortunes, Lord,
like streams in the Negev.
5 Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy.
6 Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with
songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.
Second Lesson: 1John 3.1-3
