The way of (A)peace they have not known,
And there is no justice in their ways;
(B)They have made themselves crooked paths;
Whoever takes that way shall not know peace.

Sin Confessed

Nor does righteousness overtake us;
(C)We look for light, but there is darkness!
For brightness, but we walk in blackness!

A Confession of Wickedness

And righteousness does not reach us;
We (E)hope for light, but there is darkness,
For brightness, but we walk in gloom.

  1. Isaiah 59:8 Lit it


They do not know the way of peace,
And there is no justice in their tracks.

Whoever walks on them does not know peace.(A)

We hope for gleam of light, but we walk in darkness and gloom.

The way of peace they do not know;(A)

    and righteousness does not reach us.
We look for light, but all is darkness;(D)
    for brightness, but we walk in deep shadows.
