The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad.
The desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose.
Waters shall break out in the wilderness
and streams appear in the desert;
the parched ground shall become a pool
and the thirsty land springs of water.

A highway shall be there.
It shall be called the way of holiness.
The ransomed of the Lord shall return to Zion
with songs and everlasting joy on their heads.

And joy and gladness shall be theirs,
and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
