The First Song of Isaiah

Ecce, Deus

Isaiah 12:2-6

Surely, it is God who saves me; *I will trust in him and not be afraid.

For the Lord is my stronghold and my sure defense, *and he will be my Savior.

Therefore you shall draw water with rejoicing *from the springs of salvation.

And on that day you shall say, *Give thanks to the Lord and call upon his Name;

Make his deeds known among the peoples; *see that they remember that his Name is exalted.

Sing praises of the Lord, for he has done great things, *and this is known in all the world.

Cry aloud, inhabitants of Zion, ring out your joy, *for the great one in the midst of you is the Holy One of Israel.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
