ARISE FROM THE DUST
Remove yourselves from the Barren Soil
and take Root in the Earth and
let the Source of your Origin Spring Forth.
Isa.26:19 reads, "But your dead will live, LORD;
their bodies will Rise-
let those who dwell in the dust
wake up and shout for joy-
your dew is like the dew of the morning;
the Earth will give birth to her dead."
Isa.52:1-2 reads, "Awake, awake! Put on your strength,
O Zion; Put on your beautiful garments,
O Jerusalem, the Holy City! For the uncircumcised and the unclean shall no longer invade you.
"Shake yourself from the dust, Arise:
Sit on your throne, O Jerusalem! Loose yourself from the bonds of your neck, O captive daughter of Zion!"
Isa.27:6 reads, "Those who come He shall cause
to take root in Jacob; Israel shall blossom and bud,
And fill the face of the world with fruit."
