Litany: The Day of Jubilee

Here’s a litany inspired by the biblical concept of “Jubilee.”  It comes from the Seekers Church website.

The Day of Jubilee

“Happy are those who have the God of Israel as their helper….
He is the one who keeps every promise forever,
who gives justice to the oppressed.”  Psalm 146:5,7

In the day of Jubilee,
the Holy One brings justice to the oppressed
and food to the hungry.

In the day of Jubilee,
the Holy One sets the prisoners free
and opens the eyes of the blind.

In the day of Jubilee,
the Holy One lifts up those who are bowed down
and watches over strangers and widows and orphans.

In the day of Jubilee,
all creation reaps a rich harvest of peace.
