Isaiah 26: 1-4, 7-9, 12

A strong city have we;

he sets up walls and ramparts to protect us.

Open up the gates

to let in a nation that is just,

one that keeps faith.

A nation of firm purpose you keep in peace;

in peace, for its trust in you.

Trust in the Lord forever!

For the Lord is an eternal Rock.

The way of the just is smooth;

the path of the just you make level.

Yes, for your way and your judgments, O Lord,

we look to you;

your name and your title

are the desire of our souls.

My soul yearns for you in the night,

yes, my spirit within me keeps vigil for you;

when your judgment dawns upon the earth,

the world's inhabitants learn justice.

O Lord, you mete out peace to us,

for it is you who have accomplished all we have done.
