blessed beyond measure
for every man woman child who hugs mom
echoing off the mountains
bring them solace today, oh Lord
promising us a savior who will:
...bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the LORD
for the display of his splendor.
