Isaiah 52:9 Break forth together into singing, you waste places of Jerusalem, for the LORD has comforted His people; He has redeemed Jerusalem.
Even the waste places, the unwanted corners, the scruffy side alleys where rubbish and black sacks get dumped whene no-one is looking and - let's face it - no-one is ever looking there; even those places can sing and shout for the redemption that is almost upon us will turn those places on their heads and shine light and cleansing everywhere. Are you a dark corner where no-one looks? Then start singing for the day of your redemption is almost here.
As Paul wrote to the Romans,
Romans 13:11 Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed.
