Look, Your Savior Comes!

62 1-5 Regarding Zion, I can’t keep my mouth shut,
    regarding Jerusalem, I can’t hold my tongue,
Until her righteousness blazes down like the sun
    and her salvation flames up like a torch.
Foreign countries will see your righteousness,
    and world leaders your glory.
You’ll get a brand-new name
    straight from the mouth of God.
You’ll be a stunning crown in the palm of God’s hand,
    a jeweled gold cup held high in the hand of your God.
No more will anyone call you Rejected,
    and your country will no more be called Ruined.
You’ll be called Hephzibah (My Delight),
    and your land Beulah (Married),
Because God delights in you
    and your land will be like a wedding celebration.
For as a young man marries his virgin bride,
    so your builder marries you,
And as a bridegroom is happy in his bride,
    so your God is happy with you.

You will be a crown(A) of splendor in the Lord’s hand,
    a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
No longer will they call you Deserted,(B)
    or name your land Desolate.(C)
But you will be called Hephzibah,[a](D)
    and your land Beulah[b];
for the Lord will take delight(E) in you,
    and your land will be married.(F)
As a young man marries a young woman,
    so will your Builder marry you;
as a bridegroom(G) rejoices over his bride,
    so will your God rejoice(H) over you.
