That's up to you. I imagine, perhaps naively, that there are tools that make
it easy to copy glyphs from one font to another.

Anyway, the best way to render glyphs for which the user has no font is a

the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are
healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his
own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all." [Isaiah
