KJV Text (alt. audio): Chapter 61:

     1 The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; 3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

     4 And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations. 5 And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers. 6 But ye shall be named the Priests of the LORD: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves. 7 For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them. 8 For I the LORD love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them. 9 And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the LORD hath blessed.

     10 I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels. 11 For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 17:
Oh Worship the King

— Organ Audio


1. Oh, worship the King 
All glorious above: 
Oh, gratefully sing 
His power and His love, 
Our Shield and Defender, 
The Ancient of Days, 
Pavilioned in splendor 
And girded with praise! 

2. Oh, tell of His might, 
Oh, sing of His grace, 
Whose robe is the light, 
Whose canopy space! 
His chariots of wrath 
The deep thunder-clouds form, 
And dark is His path 
On the wings of the storm. 

3. This earth, with its store 
Of wonders untold, 
Almighty, Thy power 
Hath founded of old, 
Hath stablished it fast 
By a changeless decree, 
And round it hath cast, 
Like a mantle, the sea. 

4. Thy bountiful care 
What tongues can recite? 
It breathes in the air, 
It shines in the light, 
It streams from the hills, 
It descends to the plain, 
And sweetly distills 
In the dew and the rain. 

5. Frail children of dust 
And feeble as frail, 
In Thee do we trust 
Nor find Thee to fail. 
Thy mercies, how tender, 
How firm to the end, 
Our maker, Defender, 
Redeemer, and Friend! 

6. O measureless Might, 
Ineffable Love, 
While angels delight 
To hymn Thee above, 
Thy humbler creation, 
Though feeble their lays, 
With true adoration 
Shall sing to Thy praise.
