21. Is this Jesus, then, the Lord

1 Is this Jesus, then, the Lord,
Promised since the world began?
Ask the blind to sight restored,
Ask the lame who leaped and ran;

2 Ask the once loathed leper clean,
Ask the dead to life restored:
They will tell thee Christ hath been,--
Christ will ever be--the Lord.

3 Say thou, poor man, hath not He,
As the Prophet spake of old,
Preached his Gospel unto thee?
Is not this the Christ foretold?

4 Come unto Him, all ye meek,
Shun not of His cross the same:
Blest all they His love who seek,
Bearing witness to His name.
