HYMN 84

L. M.

Salvation, righteousness, and strength in Christ. Isa. 45:21-25.

357

Jehovah speaks! let Isr'el hear;

Let all the earth rejoice and fear,

While God's eternal Son proclaims

His sovereign honors and his names.

"I am the last, and I the first,

The Savior God, and God the just;

There's none beside pretends to show

Such justice and salvation too.

["Ye that in shades of darkness dwell,

Just on the verge of death and hell,

Look up to me from distant lands;

Light, life, and heav'n are in my hands.

"I by my holy name have sworn,

Nor shall the word in vain return;

To me shall all things bend the knee,

And every tongue shall swear to me.]

"In me alone shall men confess

Lies all their strength and righteousness;

But such as dare despise my name,

I'll clothe them with eternal shame.

"In me, the Lord, shall all the seed

Of Isr'el from their sins be freed;

And by their shining graces prove

Their int'rest in my pard'ning love."
