"Get out of bed, Jerusalem! Wake up. Put your face in the sunlight. God's bright glory has risen for you. The whole earth is wrapped in darkness,
all people sunk in deep darkness, But God rises on you, his sunrise glory breaks over you. Nations will come
to your light, kings to your sunburst brightness.
Isaiah 60:1-3 MSG
