Epiphany: arise, shine!

isaiah 60:1
1Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. 2For darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the Lord will arise upon you, and his glory will appear over you. 3 Nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn. 4Lift up your eyes and look around; they all gather together, they come to you; your sons shall come from far away, and your daughters shall be carried on their nurses’ arms. 5Then you shall see and be radiant; your heart shall thrill and rejoice, because the abundance of the sea shall be brought to you, the wealth of the nations shall come to you. 6A multitude of camels shall cover you, the young camels of Midian and Ephah; all those from Sheba shall come. They shall bring gold and frankincense, and shall proclaim the praise of the Lord.

Isaiah 60 NRSV

Hi Martha, I got your comment in my email, so I'm wondering if you inadvertently deleted it? If you're still interested in a copy of this graphic, I hope and even dare trust that during the next few weeks I'm going to be making and printing for my own portfolio some print-quality PDF's of quite a few pieces of my liturgical and other art, and at that time I'd be happy to email Isaiah 60:1 to you so you can print it on whatever paper you desire. But I need to know who you are!
