Jerusalem Will Be Saved

62 Jerusalem, I will speak up
    for your good.
I will never be silent
till you are safe and secure,
    sparkling like a flame.
Your great victory will be seen
    by every nation and king;
the Lord will even give you
    a new name.
You will be a glorious crown,
a royal headband,
    for the Lord your God.

Your name will no longer be
“Deserted and Childless,”
    but “Happily Married.”
You will please the Lord;
your country
    will be his bride.
Your people will take the land,[a]
just as a young man
    takes a bride.
The Lord will be pleased
    because of you,
just as a husband is pleased
    with his bride.
