(Lyrics) Light For The Gentiles
Words and Music by Leslie (aka Jesse) Hughes ©
(Words from Isaiah chapter 42)

Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight
I will put my Spirit on him and he will bring justice to the nations
He will not shout or cry out, or raise his voice in the streets
A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out
In faithfulness he will bring forth justice
He will not falter or be discouraged till he establishes justice on earth
In his law the islands will put their hope
This is what God the LORD says —
He who created the heavens and stretched them out
Who spread out the earth and all that comes out of it
Who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it
"I, the LORD, have called you in righteousness
I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you
To be a covenant for the people, and a light for the Gentiles
To open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison
And to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness
"I am the LORD ; that is my name!
I will not give my glory to another, or my praise to idols
See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare
Before they spring into being I announce them to you"
The Lord will march out like a mighty man
Like a warrior he will stir up his zeal; with a shout he will raise the battle cry
And will triumph over his enemies
"For a long time I have kept silent, I have been quiet and held myself back
But now, like a woman in childbirth, I cry out, I gasp and pant
I will lay waste the mountains and hills, and dry up all their vegetation
I will turn rivers into islands, and dry up the pools
I will lead the blind by ways they have not known
Along unfamiliar paths I will guide them
I will turn the darkness into light before them, and make the rough places smooth
These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them
But those who trust in idols
Who say to images, 'You are our gods'
Will be turned back in utter shame
On the day we reclaim our faithful good Lord’s name
