WHEN THE RANSOMED OF THE LORD RETURN — A Lush Garden Will Replace Desert Wasteland


Date : 2019-10-18
Speaker : Professor Paul Naumann
Isaiah 35:6-7,10
Then the lame shall leap like a deer,
And the tongue of the dumb sing.
For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness,
And streams in the desert.
7 The parched ground shall become a pool,
And the thirsty land springs of water;
In the habitation of jackals, where each lay,
There shall be grass with reeds and rushes.
. . . 10 And the ransomed of the Lord shall return,
And come to Zion with singing,
With everlasting joy on their heads.

Hymn: TLH 660, st. 1,4: I’m But a Stranger Here Organ Audio

1. I’m but a stranger here, 
Heav’n is my home; 
Earth is a desert drear, 
Heav’n is my home. 
Danger and sorrow stand 
Round me on every hand; 
Heav’n is my fatherland, 
Heav’n is my home. 

4. Therefore I murmur not, 
Heav’n is my home; 
Whate’er my earthly lot, 
Heav’n is my home; 
And I shall surely stand 
There at my Lord’s right hand. 
Heav’n is my fatherland, 
Heav’n is my home.
