Isaiah 40:9–10

The Greatness of God


  Go on up to a high mountain,
    O Zion, herald of good news;1
  lift up your voice with strength,
    O Jerusalem, herald of good news;2
    lift it up, fear not;
  say to the cities of Judah,
    “Behold your God!”
10   Behold, the Lord GOD comes with might,
    and his arm rules for him;
  behold, his reward is with him,
    and his recompense before him.

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


1. Now are the days fulfilled, 
God’s Son is manifested, 
Now His great majesty 
In human flesh is vested. 
Behold the mighty God, 
By whom all wrath is stilled, 
The woman’s promised Seed - 
Now are the days fulfilled. 

2. Now are the days fulfilled, 
Lo, Jacob’s Star is shining; 
The gloomy night has fled 
Wherein the world lay pining. 
Now, Israel, look on Him 
Who long thy heart hath thrilled; 
Hear Zion’s watchmen cry: 
Now are the days fulfilled. 

3. Now are the days fulfilled, 
The child of God rejoices; 
No bondage of the Law, 
No curses that it voices, 
Can fill our hearts with fear; 
On Christ our hope we build. 
Behold the Prince of Peace– 
Now are the days fulfilled.
