Comfort ye, confort ye my people, saith your God
Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem and cry unto her
That her warfare is accomplished
That her inquity is pardoned
The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness
Prepare ye the way of the Lord
Make straight in the desert a highway for our Lord
Isaiah 40:1-3

Every valley shall be exalted
And every mountain and hill made low
The crooked straight and the rough places plain

And the glorly of the Lord shall be revealed
And all flesh shall see it together
For the mouth of the Lord hath spoked it
Isaiah 40:5

Thus sith the Lord of Hosts
Yet once a little while and I will shake the heavens
And the earth, the sea, and the dry land
And I will shake all nations
And the desire of all nations shall come
The Lord whom ye seek shall suddenly come to his temple
Even the messenger of the covenant whom ye delight in
Behold, He shall come saith the Lord of Hosts

And who shall stand when He appeareth ?

Arise, shine for thy light is come
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee
Isaiah 40:9 60:1

And the gross darkness the people
But the Lord shall arise upon thee
And His glory shall be seen upon thee

And then they dwell in the land of shadow of death
Upon them hath the light shined

There were shepherds abiding in the field
Keeping watch over their flocks by night
And lo ! the angel of the Lord came upon them
And the glory of the Lord shone round about them
And they were sore afraid

Fear not for behold
I bring you good tidings of great joy

And the ears of the deaf unstopped
Then shall the lame man leap as an hart
And the tongue of the dumb shall sing

And He shall gather the lambs with His arm
And carry them in His bosom
And gently lead those that are with young

And He shall give you rest
Take His yoke upon you and learn of Him
For He is meek and lowly of heart
And ye shall find rest unto your souls
