Isaiah 42:1–4 (Listen)

The Lord‘s Chosen Servant


42:1   Behold my servant, whom I uphold,
    my chosen, in whom my soul delights;
  I have put my Spirit upon him;
    he will bring forth justice to the nations.
  He will not cry aloud or lift up his voice,
    or make it heard in the street;
  a bruised reed he will not break,
    and a faintly burning wick he will not quench;
    he will faithfully bring forth justice.
  He will not grow faint or be discouraged1
    till he has established justice in the earth;
    and the coastlands wait for his law.

Hymn: TLH 22, st. 1-3: Lord, When we Bend Before Thy Throne

Hymnary.org Organ Audio



1. Lord, when we bend before Thy throne 
And our confessions pour, 
Teach us to feel the sins we own 
And hate what we deplore. 

2. Our broken spirit pitying see, 
True penitence impart; 
Then let a kindling glance from Thee 
Beam hope upon the heart. 

3. When our responsive tongues essay 
Their grateful hymns to raise, 
Grant that our souls may join the lay 
And mount to Thee in praise.
