Meditation for Advent: Day 15

The desert will sing and rejoice

and the wilderness will blossom with flowers;

and will see the Lord’s splendor,

see the Lord’s greatness and power.

 

Tell everyone who is anxious;

be strong and don’t be afraid.

The blind will be able to see;

the deaf will be able to hear;

the lame will leap and dance;

those who can’t speak will shout.

 

They will hammer their swords into ploughs

and their spears into pruning-knives;

the nations will live in peace;

they will train for war no more.

 

This is the promise of God;

God’s promise will be fulfilled.
