Advent, First Week, Friday

On this day the Lord of hosts will provide for all peoples. He will destroy death forever. The Lord God will wipe away the tears from all faces. On that day it will be said, "Behold our God, to whom we looked to save us! This is the Lord for whom we looked; Let us rejoice and be glad that he has saved us!" Isaiah 25, 6-10 O God, wipe the tears from my face; I do rejoice and am glad that You have saved me!
