Representative Text

1 A message God has given
That tells of Christ our King;
Its words of hope and comfort
Great joy and peace can bring.

Be strong, fear not; behold, your God shall come!
The desert then shall blossom as the rose,
The lame shall leap, the dumb shall sing for joy,
The eyes of all the blind unclose.
The ransomed of the Lord shall then return,
With songs, to Zion; in that wondrous day
Great joy and gladness shall forever reign--
All sorrow then shall flee away.

2 Rejoice, O weary pilgrim,
Along earth's troubled way,
The Word that God has given
Tells of a brighter day. [Chorus]

3 Take courage, mourning watcher,
There comes a heavenly dawn
When eyes long dimmed with weeping
Shall view the promised morn. [Chorus]

4 The Word of God is given,
Nor ever shall it fail;
The Word of God triumphant
O'er doubtings must prevail. [Chorus]
