Old Testament  - Fifth Sunday in Lent
Isaiah 43.16-21

16 Thus says the Lord ,
     who makes a way in the sea,
     a path in the mighty waters,
17 who brings out chariot and horse,
     army and warrior;
they lie down, they cannot rise,
     they are extinguished, quenched like a wick:
18 Do not remember the former things,
     or consider the things of old.
19 I am about to do a new thing;
     now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness
     and rivers in the desert.
20 The wild animals will honour me,
     the jackals and the ostriches;
for I give water in the wilderness,
     rivers in the desert,
to give drink to my chosen people,
21 the people whom I formed for myself
so that they might declare my praise.
