19 “The sun will no longer be your light by day,
    nor for brightness will the moon shine on you by night[a]
for the Lord will be your everlasting light,[b]
    and your God will be your glory.
20 Your sun won’t[c] set,
    nor will your moon withdraw itself—
for the Lord will be your everlasting light,
    and your days of mourning will end.
21 Then your people will all be righteous;
    They’ll possess the land forever.
They are the shoot[d] that the Lord planted,[e]
    the works[f] of his hands,
        so that I might be glorified.
