Isaiah 35:8–10 (Listen)
8 And a highway shall be there,
and it shall be called the Way of Holiness;
the unclean shall not pass over it.
It shall belong to those who walk on the way;
even if they are fools, they shall not go astray.1
9 No lion shall be there,
nor shall any ravenous beast come up on it;
they 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 singing;
everlasting joy shall be upon their heads;
they shall obtain gladness and joy,
and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
Hymn: TLH 453, st. 1,3 :
We Are the Lord’s; His all-Sufficient Merit
1. We are the Lord’s; His all-sufficient merit,
Sealed on the cross, to us this grace accords.
We are the Lord’s and all things shall inherit;
Whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s.
3. We are the Lord’s; no darkness brooding o’er us
Can make us tremble while this star affords
A steady light along the path before us–
Faith’s full assurance that we are the Lord’s.
