3 Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. 4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompense; he will come and save you.

     5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. 6 Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert. 7 And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes. 8 And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. 9 No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there: 10 And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.(KJV)

When Sinners See Their Lost Condition

1. When sinners see their lost condition 
And feel the pressing load of sin 
And Jesus cometh on His mission 
To heal the sin-sick heart within, 
All grief must flee before His grace, 
And joy divine will take its place. 

2. When Jesus enters meek and lowly 
To fill the home with sweetest peace; 
When hearts have felt His blessing holy 
And found from sin complete release, 
Then light and calm within shall reign 
And hearts divided love again. 

3. When Jesus enters land and nation 
And moves the people with His love; 
When, yielding to His kind persuasion, 
Our hearts His truth and blessing prove, 
Then shall our life on earth be blest, 
The peace of God on us shall rest. 

4. When Jesus comes, –O blessed story!– 
He works a change in heart and life; 
God’s kingdom comes with power and glory 
To young and old, to man and wife; 
Through Sacrament and living Word 
Faith, love, and hope are now conferred. 

5. Then stilled are cries and lamentation, 
Then loosed is Satan’s every band, 
In death is hope and consolation, 
The soul is safe in Jesus’ hand. 
When we shall walk through death’s dark vale, 
His rod and staff shall never fail. 

6. Oh, may He soon to every nation 
Find entrance where He is unknown, 
With life and light and full salvation, 
That heathendom may be o’erthrown 
And healing to the hearts may come 
In heathen land and Christian home!
