The Word of God stands forever, and the Word says, “Christ is coming to tend His flock like a Shepherd!”

BibleGateway: Isaiah 40:6-11

ESV Text: Isaiah 40:6-11


KJV Text:

The section starts at about 0:43 and ends at about 1:49

6 The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field: 7 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of the LORD bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass. 8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

     9 O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God! 10 Behold, the Lord GOD will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. 11 He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.(KJV)

1. On Jordan’s bank the Baptist’s cry 
Announces that the Lord is nigh; 
Come, then, and hearken, for he brings 
Glad tidings from the King of kings. 

2. Then cleansed be every Christian breast 
And furnished for so great a Guest. 
Yea, let us each our hearts prepare 
For Christ to come and enter there. 

3. For Thou art our Salvation, Lord, 
Our Refuge, and our great Reward. 
Without Thy grace our souls must fade 
And wither like a flower decayed. 

4. Lay on the sick Thy healing hand 
And make the fallen strong to stand; 
Show us the glory of Thy face 
Till beauty springs in every place. 

5. All praise, eternal Son, to Thee 
Whose advent sets Thy people free, 
Whom, with the Father, we adore 
And Holy Ghost forevermore.
