Zechariah 1:12–14 (Listen)
12 Then the angel of the LORD said, ‘O LORD of hosts, how long will you have no mercy on Jerusalem and the cities of Judah, against which you have been angry these seventy years?’ 13 And the LORD answered gracious and comforting words to the angel who talked with me. 14 So the angel who talked with me said to me, ‘Cry out, Thus says the LORD of hosts: I am exceedingly jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion.
Hymn: TLH 221, st. 1,5 :
Hark! Ten Thousand Harps and Voices
1. Hark! ten thousand harps and voices
Sound the note of praise above;
Jesus reigns, and heaven rejoices,–
Jesus reigns, the God of Love.
See, He sits on yonder throne;
Jesus rules the world alone.
5. King of Glory, reign forever;
Thine an everlasting crown.
Nothing from Thy love shall sever
Those whom Thou hast made Thine own,
Happy objects of Thy grace,
Destined to behold Thy face.
