Isaiah 12:2-5

 2Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.

 3Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.

 4And in that day shall ye say, Praise the LORD, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted.

 5Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth.

Isaiah 12:2-5

The Message (MSG)

 2“Yes, indeed—God is my salvation.
   I trust, I won’t be afraid.
God—yes God!—is my strength and song,
   best of all, my salvation!”

 3-4Joyfully you’ll pull up buckets of water
   from the wells of salvation.
And as you do it, you’ll say,
   “Give thanks to God.
Call out his name.
   Ask him anything!
Shout to the nations, tell them what he’s done,
   spread the news of his great reputation!

 5-6“Sing praise-songs to God. He’s done it all!
   Let the whole earth know what he’s done!
Raise the roof! Sing your hearts out, O Zion!
   The Greatest lives among you: The Holy of Israel.”
