(Lyrics) Isaiah 60 Spoken Version 1
Words and Music by Leslie (aka Jesse) Hughes ©
(Based on Isaiah 60)

"Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you
See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples
But the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you
Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn
"Lift up your eyes and look about you
All assemble and come to you; your sons come from afar
And your daughters are carried on the arm
Then you will look and be radiant, your heart will throb and swell with joy
The wealth on the seas will be brought to you, to you the riches of the nations will come
Herds of camels will cover your land, young camels of Midian and Ephah
And all from Sheba will come, bearing gold and incenseand proclaiming the praise of the Lord. 7 All Kedar's flocks will be gathered to you, the rams of Nebaioth will serve you
They will be accepted as offerings on my altar, and I will adorn my glorious temple
"Who are these that fly along like clouds, like doves to their nests?
Surely the islands look to me; in the lead are the ships of Tarshish
Bringing your sons from afar, with their silver and gold
To the honor of the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel
For he has endowed you with splendor
"Foreigners will rebuild your walls, and their kings will serve you
Though in anger I struck you, in favor I will show you compassion
Your gates will always stand open, they will never be shut, day or night
So that men may bring you the wealth of the nations — their kings led in triumphal procession
For the nation or kingdom that will not serve you will perish; it will be utterly ruined
"The glory of Lebanon will come to you, the pine, the fir and the cypress together
To adorn the place of my sanctuary; and I will glorify the place of my feet
The sons of your oppressors will come bowing before you
All who despise you will bow down at your feet
And will call you the City of the Lord, Zion of the Holy One of Israel
"Although you have been forsaken and hated, with no one traveling through
I will make you the everlasting pride and the joy of all generations
You will drink the milk of nations and be nursed at royal breasts
Then you will know that I, the Lord, am your Savior
Your Redeemer the Mighty One of Jacob
Instead of bronze I will bring you gold
And silver in place of iron
Instead of wood I will bring you bronze
And iron in place of stones
I will make peace your governor and righteousness your ruler
No longer will violence be heard in your land
Nor ruin or destruction within your borders
But you will call your walls Salvation and your gates Praise
The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you
For the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory
Your sun will never set again, and your moon will wane no more
The Lord will be your everlasting light, and your days of sorrow will end
Then will all your people be righteous and they will possess the land forever
They are the shoot I have planted, the work of my hands
For the display of my splendor
The least of you will become a thousand, the smallest a mighty nation
I am the Lord; in its time I will do this swiftly

I am a New Order, New Age and New Covenant Gospel Rock and Roller preaching the Gospel to the world in the tradition of Dylan and Springsteen. My songs metaphorically interpret the Bible and book of Revelation, helping to shine a light upon Bob Dylan’s lyrical clues. I serve the Spirit of the Lord, and dedicate my eternal Star to serving my King the Holy Spirit of Truth (Isaiah chapter 11 and 2 Corinthians 3:17) and proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, the day of God’s Salvation and the New Covenant (Luke 4:18-19, Isaiah chapter 61, 2 Corinthians 6:1-2, Jeremiah 31:31-34, Hebrews 8:7-13) by measuring the temple, unsealing the scroll in the book of Revelation and preaching the true metaphoric interpretation of the Gospel to the world inspired by Mt 13:35 and Ps 78:2 that states “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world."

Gospel references for these songs and spoken words are the same as my recent song and spoken word posts:
(Please note also that a Jew and Israelite in a metaphoric interpretation of the Gospel is not a person of Jewish heritage, it is a metaphor for a part of all of us that is a Jew within and another part of us that is a Gentile within -see Romans 2:28-29- and how these two parts become one in Ephesians 2:14-22, Ezekiel 37:15-17 and Romans 3:27-31, also how there are those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars- see Revelations 3:9)
