Zephaniah 3:14-18
Shout for joy, O daughter Zion! 
Shout for joy, O daughter,____________
(Substitute your name or the name of your community)
Sing joyfully O Israel

Be glad and exult with all your heart.

Philippians 4:4-7
Brothers and sisters, rejoice in God always!
I shall say it again rejoice!
Your kindness should be known to all.
God is near.
Have no anxiety at all,
but in everything by prayers and petitions, with thanksgiving, make your requests know to God.
Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Gospel 3:10-18
...."Whoever has two cloaks should share with the person who has none.
And whoever has food should do likewise...."
