Ankeny UCC Reads Lamentations March 31, 2015

11 Women have been raped in Zion,

young women in Judah’s cities.

12 Officials have been hung up

by their hands;

elders have been shown no respect.

13 Young men have carried grinding stones;

boys have stumbled

under loads of wood.

14 Elders have left the city gate;

young people stop their music.

15 Joy has left our heart;

our dancing has changed

into lamentation.
