10 The Second Song of Isaiah Quaerite Dominum
Isaiah 55:6-11

  1. Seek the Lord while he wills to be found; *
     call upon him when he draws near. 
  2. Let the wicked forsake their ways *
     and the evil ones their thoughts;
  3. And let them turn to the Lord, and he will have compassion, *
     and to our God, for he will richly pardon.
  4. For my thoughts are not your thoughts,*
     nor your ways my ways, says the Lord.
  5. For as the heavens are higher than the earth,*
     so are my ways higher than your ways,
     and my thoughts than your thoughts. 
  6. For as rain and snow fall from the heavens *
     and return not again, but water the earth, 
  7.  Bringing forth life and giving growth, *
     seed for sowing and bread for eating, 
  8. So is my word that goes forth from my mouth; *
     it will not return to me empty; 
  9. But it will accomplish that which I have purposed, *
     and prosper in that for which I sent it. 
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: *
 as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.
