Refrain:

All   The earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord.

1    There shall come forth a shoot from the stock of Jesse,  

and a branch shall grow out of his roots.

2    And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him,  

the spirit of wisdom and understanding,

3    The spirit of counsel and might,  

the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.

4    He shall not judge by what his eyes see,  

or decide by what his ears hear,

5    But with righteousness he shall judge the poor,  

and decide with equity for the meek of the earth.

6    The wolf shall dwell with the lamb,  

and the leopard shall lie down with the kid.

7    The calf, the lion and the fatling together,  

with a little child to lead them.

8    They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain,  

for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord

as the waters cover the sea.

Isaiah 11.1,2,3b-4a,6,9

All   Glory to the Father and to the Son

and to the Holy Spirit;

as it was in the beginning is now

and shall be for ever. Amen.

All   The earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord.
