Isaiah 52:7

Misty trees, West Virginia 2007
Misty trees, West Virginia © 2007 Rick Lee

What lamp proclaims this light
   That ushers heaven's peace?
Whose tidings in the night
   Proclaim the world's release?

What messenger reveals
   What heaven thus ordains:
That blood salvation seals
   And God in Zion reigns?

And from His mercy seat
   Our sins He will excuse–
How beautiful the feet
   Of those who bring good news.
