23 Thus says Cyrus king of Persia:
All the kingdoms of the earth the Lord God of heaven has given me. And He has commanded me to build Him a house at Jerusalem which is in Judah. Who is among you of all His people? May the Lord his God be with him, and let him go up!
Hymn: WS 705: Come, O Long-Expected Jesus
1. Come, O long expected Jesus,
Born to set Your people free;
From our sins and fears release us;
By Your death on Calvary.
2. Born your people to deliver;
Born a child and yet a King!
Born to reign in us forever,
Now Your gracious kingdom bring.
3. By your own eternal Spirit
Rule in all our hearts alone;
By your all sufficient merit
Raise us to your glorious throne.
