Isaiah 12
Contemporary English Version

A Song of Praise

1At that time you will say,

“I thank you, Lord!

You were angry with me,

but you stopped being angry

and gave me comfort.

2 I trust you to save me,

Lord God,

and I won't be afraid.

My power and my strength+

come from you,

and you have saved me.”

3With great joy, you people

will get water

from the well of victory.

4At that time you will say,

“Our Lord, we are thankful,

and we worship only you.

We will tell the nations

how glorious you are

and what you have done.

5Because of your wonderful deeds

we will sing your praises

everywhere on earth.”

6Sing, people of Zion!

Celebrate the greatness

of the holy Lord of Israel.

God is here to help you.


12.2 strength: Or “song.”
