Are you frustrated and troubled by your sins? Then the LORD has words of comfort especially for you!

BibleGateway: Isaiah 57:14-19

ESV Text: Isaiah 57:14-19


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 57
14 And shall say, Cast ye up, cast ye up, prepare the way, take up the stumbling block out of the way of my people. 15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones. 16 For I will not contend for ever, neither will I be always wroth: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls which I have made.

     17 For the iniquity of his covetousness was I wroth, and smote him: I hid me, and was wroth, and he went on frowardly in the way of his heart. 18 I have seen his ways, and will heal him: I will lead him also, and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners. 19 I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the LORD; and I will heal him.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 152:
When O’er my Sins I Sorrow

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. When o’er my sins I sorrow, 
Lord, I will look to Thee 
And hence my comfort borrow 
That Thou wast slain for me; 
Yea, Lord, Thy precious blood was spilt 
For me, O most unworthy, 
To take away my guilt. 

2. Oh, what a marvelous offering! 
Behold, the Master spares 
His servants, and their suffering 
And grief for them He bears. 
God stoopeth from His throne on high; 
For me, His guilty creature, 
He deigns as man to die. 

3. My manifold transgression 
Henceforth can harm me none 
Since Jesus’ bloody Passion 
For me God’s grace hath won. 
His precious blood my debts hath paid; 
Of hell and all its torments 
I am no more afraid. 

4. Therefore I will forever 
Give glory unto Thee, 
Jesus, loving Savior, 
For what Thou didst for me. 
I’ll spend my breath in songs of thanks 
For Thy sad cry, Thy sufferings, 
Thy wrongs, Thy guiltless death.
