How would the people know the Messiah when He came? Partly through signs like these.

BibleGateway: Isaiah 35:4-7

ESV Text: Isaiah 35:4-7


KJV Text:

The section starts at about 0:26 and ends at about 1:16

4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompense; he will come and save you.

     5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. 6 Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert. 7 And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 360:
Oh, For a Thousand Tongues to Sing

— Organ Audio


1. Oh, for a thousand tongues to sing 
My great Redeemer’s praise, 
The glories of my God and King, 
The triumphs of His grace! 

2. My gracious Master and my God, 
Assist me to proclaim, 
To spread through all the earth abroad, 
The honors of Thy name. 

3. Jesus!–the name that charms our fears, 
That bids our sorrows cease; 
‘Tis music in the sinner’s ears, 
‘Tis life and health and peace. 

4. He breaks the power of canceled sin, 
He sets the prisoner free; 
His blood can make the foulest clean; 
His blood avails for me. 

5. Look unto Him, ye nations; own 
Your God, ye fallen race, 
Look and be saved through faith alone, 
Be justified by grace. 

6. See all your sins on Jesus laid; 
The Lamb of God was slain; 
His soul was once an offering made 
For every soul of man. 

7. Glory to God and praise and love 
Be ever, ever given 
By saints below and saints above, 
The Church in earth and heaven.
