1 The Spirit of the Lord Jehovah is upon me, because Jehovah hath anointed me to announce glad tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and opening of the prison to them that are bound; 2 to proclaim the acceptable year of Jehovah, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
Have you not heard the joyful sound?
Glad tidings through the world resound -
Of pardon, peace, salvation free,
God's blessèd way of liberty.
His word believe,
His Son receive,
Who died for such as we.
