refugee

You shall not wrong a sojourner or oppress him,

for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt.

lead me to the rock

Hear my cry, O God,
listen to my prayer;
from the end of the earth I call to you
when my heart is faint.
Lead me to the rock
that is higher than I,
for you have been my refuge,
a strong tower against the enemy.

-Psalm 61: 1-3

come

“The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come,”

And let the one who hears say, “Come,”

And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take the water of life without price.”

-Revelation 22:17

call your walls ‘salvation’

“Instead of bronze I will bring you gold,
and silver in place of iron.
Instead of wood I will bring you bronze,
and iron in place of stones.
I will make peace your governor
and well-being your ruler.

No longer will violence be heard in your land,
nor ruin or destruction within your borders,
but you will call your walls Salvation
and your gates Praise.

-Isaiah 60:17-18
