WHEN THE RANSOMED OF THE LORD RETURN — Joy and Gladness Will Replace Sorrow and Sighing

 

Date : 2019-10-30
Speaker : Professor Paul Naumann

Isaiah 35:8–10 (Listen)


  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
  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: LSB 336: Lo! He Comes with Clouds Descending

Hymnary.org

1. Lo! He comes with clouds descending, 
Once for ev’ry sinner slain; 
Thousand thousand saints attending 
Swell the triumph of His train; 
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia! 
Christ the Lord returns to reign. 

2. Ev’ry eye shall now behold Him 
Robed in glorious majesty; 
Those who set at naught and sold Him, 
Pierced and nailed Him to the tree, 
Deeply wailing, deeply wailing, deeply wailing, 
Shall their true Messiah see. 

3. Those dear tokens of His passion 
Still His dazzling body bears, 
Cause of endless exultation 
To His ransomed worshipers. 
With what rapture, with what rapture, with what rapture 
Gaze we on those glorious scars! 

4. Yea, amen, let all adore Thee, 
High on Thine eternal throne; 
Savior, take the pow’r and glory, 
Claim the kingdom as Thine own. 
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia! 
Thou shalt reign, and Thou alone!
