Isaiah 61:1
New Living Translation (NLT)

Good News for the Oppressed

61 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me,
for the Lord has anointed me
to bring good news to the poor.
He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted
and to proclaim that captives will be released
and prisoners will be freed.

 

Through the Bars

Life is quite easy
Down here at the zoo
Just sit in our cages
As the people pass through

Our food is all furnished
Our shelter is free
The doctor looks in
And there is not a fee

There’s only one problem
Or maybe there’s two
We often get bored
Cause there is nothing to do

And when we get to thinking
About the freedoms we’ve lost
We quickly discover
Our bars can’t be crossed

So take some advice
As you pass by our pen
Hold on to your freedom
Or you might not see it again

Father,

Your mercy is great and Your arm is mighty. You have purposed to save the lost and nothing will deter You. Thank You for Your immeasurable love.
