Beauty for Ashes

This is one of the most beautiful verses in God's word and one of my favourite. I remember singing these words in one of the old Scripture choruses during those early days when I first became a Christian. Through the years they have never failed to lift up my spirits whenever I get a bout of the blues.

Isaiah 61:1-3 (NKJV)
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.
