This sounds similar to the Good Shepherd parable of John 10:11-18, and outlines a great hope for the future to be expected.
Under the lordship of Christ, the Good Shepherd, God promises a new day will change darkness to light, and the Messiah will occupy the throne of David. Upon him will rest God's power to judge and rule the chosen people.
The creed says Jesus "sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead."

We are all intimately connected as one body in Jesus. Isaiah celebrates our intimate union with our creator, describing us as the joyful bride of God. Though there had been alienation and rejection from both sides in the past, the prophet describes us as God’s delight. That connection is also emphasized in Paul’s oddly graphic description of church folks as body parts — we need each other because we are not a living, breathing body if we are somehow separated.
When Jesus visited a wedding at Cana in Galilee, he showed that human disappointments matter to him and that he would be prepared to redeem them. This is a story about a young girl's bitter disappointment when she became a bridesmaid.
