Anthem text
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me
because he has anointed me
to preach the gospel to the poor.
He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted,
to preach deliverance to the captives,
and recovery of sight to the blind,
to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

To give to them that mourn a garland for ashes,
the oil of gladness instead of their tears,
the garment of praise for their spirit of heaviness,
that they may be called oaks of righteousness,
the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.

This day, in your midst are these words fulfilled.

Isaiah 61, Luke 4

review copy
