Glad Tidings

Glad Tidings

 

(Isaiah 61:1-3)

 

 

The gospel brings tidings, glad tidings indeed,

 

to mourners in Zion, who want to be freed

 

from sin, and from Satan, and Mount Sinai’s flame,

 

good news of salvation, through Jesus the Lamb.

 

 

What sweet invitations the gospel contains,

 

to men heavy laden with bondage and chains;

 

it welcomes the weary to come and be blessed

 

with ease from their burdens, in Jesus to rest.

 

 

For every poor mourner, who thirsts for the Lord,

 

a fountain is opened in Jesus the Word;

 

their poor parched conscience to cool and to wash

 

from guilt and pollution, from dead works and dross.

 

 

A robe is provided, their shame now to hide,

 

in which none are clothed but Jesus’ bride;

 

and though it be costly, yet is the robe free,

 

and all Zion’s mourners shall decked with it be.
