Original Text
The spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because He hath anointed me to preach the Gospel to the poor
He hath sent me to heal the broken-hearted,
to preach deliv'rance to the captives and recov'ring of sight to the blind
to preach the acceptable year of the Lord
To give unto them that mourn a garland for ashes,
the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
that they might be called trees of righteousness the planting of the Lord,
that He might be glorified. For as the earth bringeth forth her bud,
and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth
So the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.
As the earth bringeth forth her bud The spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because He hath anointed me to preach the Gospel.
