“The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your countrymen; to him you shall listen.
Hymn: TLH 56, st. 1-3 :
Jesus Came, the Heavens Adoring
1. Jesus came, the heavens adoring,
Came with peace from realms on high;
Jesus came for man’s redemption,
Lowly came on earth to die;
Came in deep humility.
2. Jesus comes again in mercy
When our hearts are bowed with care;
Jesus comes again in answer
To an earnest, heartfelt prayer;
Comes to save us from despair.
3. Jesus comes to hearts rejoicing,
Bringing news of sins forgiven;
Jesus comes in sounds of gladness,
Leading souls redeemed to heaven.
Now the gate of death is riven.
