Track Notes: This song from Isaiah 61 was given to Dr. Kuban by the Holy Spirit on Jan 1st, 2018, as an encouragement that 2018 would be a year of Jubilee. Four months later on Shabbat morning the Lord told him to "Finish writing the song from Isaiah 61 today." The B'rit Hadashah (New Testament) portion for that Shabbat was Luke 4:18, the very familiar passage Yeshua quotes from Isaiah 61 as He begins His ministry to human kind. What a marvelous confirmation! Steve sang and recorded it on Facebook Live the next morning

The Spirit of the LORD is on Me (Jerusalem Rejoices) Isaiah 61:1-2,10-11 GNT) ©2018 by Steve Kuban

LYRICS
The Spirit of the LORD is on me
Anointing me to preach
Glad tidings to the meek
And to bind up the brokenhearted
To proclaim liberty to the captives
Release to the prisoners
For this is the acceptable year of the LORD

(Verse 1)
He gave me beauty for ashes
The oil of joy for mourning
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness
That we might be trees of righteousness
The planting of the LORD (YHVH)
The He might be glorified

(Brass Solo)

(Verse 2)
You shall build up the old waste places
Raise up the desolations
Repair the broken cities of many generations
You shall be called “The Priests of YHVH”
“Ministers to our God”
You'll eat the wealth of nations
And in their riches you will boast

(Verse 3)
Instead of shame you will have double
In your land — no more trouble
And your people will have twice as much
And their joy will be eternal

"For I, YHVH, love justice
I hate crime, evil intent
And I will faithfully reward them
With My Eternal Covenant  
Verse 4
You shall be known among the Gentiles
Your offspring among the nations
All who see you shall acknowledge
You're the seed YHVH has blessed."

I rejoice greatly in YHVH
I delight in my Elohim
For He has clothed me with the garments
Of His salvation
He's wrapped me in His robe of righteousness
Like a groom in a Priest's array
Like a bride adorns herself with jewels
Prepared for her wedding day!

(Brass Solo)

(Verse 5)
Jerusalem rejoices
Because of what YHVH has done
Like a bride dressed for her wedding day
Clothed in God's salvation
Put on your garments of salvation
Your bridal ornamentations
Your robes of righteousness
To spring up before the nations

For as the soil makes the plants grow
And the garden vegetation
(So) ADONAI will make
Righteousness and praise
Spring up before the nations

He gives you beauty for ashes
The oil of joy for mourning
The garments of praise for the spirit of heaviness
That you might be trees of righteousness
The planting of ADONAI
The He might be glorified

(— Brass solo)

The Spirit of the LORD is on me
Anointing me to preach
Glad tidings to the meek
And to bind up the brokenhearted
To proclaim liberty to the captives
Release to the prisoners
For this is the acceptable year of the LORD

(Bridge)
The Ruach of YHVH
Anointing me
Glad tidings
To set them free
Liberty!
Sight to see!
It is the year
Of Jubilee!

YHVH
Anointing me
Glad tidings
To set them free
Liberty
Sight to see
It's the year
Of Jubilee!
