Messiah's Ministry - Isaiah Series (24)

Tune: All Saints

('Who are these like stars appearing?')

Isaiah 61 v.1-3


The Spirit of the LORD God be

Upon me, anointed see

Am I, to preach good tidings to

Meek and poor, to them renew

To bind up broken-hearted

Captives freedom imparted


Opening of prison to they

Who are bound, in bondage lay

To proclaim acceptable year

Of the LORD, and His day near

Day of vengeance of our God

Enemies shall be down trod


To comfort all that do mourn in

Zion, they that dwell therein

To console, to appoint, to give

Beauty for ashes, they live

The oil of joy for mourning

Garment of praise to them bring


A garment of praise in the place

Of heaviness, by God's grace

That they be [as] trees of righteousness

Planting of the LORD no less

That He may be glorified

Now has come restoring-tide
