Scripture for the Fourth Monday in Advent 2010

Zephaniah 3:14-17

14 Sing, O Daughter of Zion;
shout aloud, O Israel!
Be glad and rejoice with all your heart,
O Daughter of Jerusalem!
15 The LORD has taken away your punishment,
he has turned back your enemy.
The LORD, the King of Israel, is with you;
never again will you fear any harm.
16 On that day they will say to Jerusalem,
“Do not fear, O Zion;
do not let your hands hang limp.
17 The LORD your God is with you,
he is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
he will quiet you with his love,
he will rejoice over you with singing.

Thank You, Lord, for taking away our punishment and saving us—for taking delight in us and quieting us with Your love, for rejoicing over us with singing. We praise You and sing to You in joy, glad and rejoicing in heart. In the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen.
