Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into
the | high | mountains ; 0 Jerusalem that bringest good tidings, lift | up
thy voice with strength; * Lifi it up, be | not a 1 fraid; Say unto the cities of Judah, Be hold your God! He shall feed his flock | like a | shepherd; He shall gather the lambs with his arm, And carry
them in his bosom.; Ànd shall gently lead | those that | are with young. How beautiful appear up / on the mountains The feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that
publisheth peace! Thai bringeth good tidings of joy, that publisheth |
salvation, That saith unto Zion, | Thy | God | reigneth! “ The Spirit of the Lord is up on me, Because the Lord | hath an ointed me: To preach glad tidings to the meek | he hath | sent:
me; To bind | up the broken hearted; To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to lihem that are |
bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, And the day of vengeance f our God; To comfort | all that | meurn; "To give unto thein | Leauty for ashes, The oil cf joy for mourning, The garment of; raise for the spirit of heaviness." The Lord God is our strength and our song: lie also is bei voine | our salvation,
Therefore with joy shall we | draw | wąter
GOOD FRIDAY. WHO hath believed | our re port? And to whom hath the arm of the Lord | been re
vealed ? He hath no form nor comeliness, that we should I
look up | on hin ;
was I laid up | on him ;
He was brought as a | lamb to the slaughter ;
opened not his mouth.
By oppression and judgment he was taken a | way;
His grave was appointed with the wicked;
Of the travail of his soul, he shall / see the fruit,
many to righteousness,
WHITSUNDAY. THE wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad And the desert | shall re | joice and | flourish; Like the rose shall it | blossom ab | undantly, And rejoice leven with ! joy and singing,
Strengthen ye ihe feeble hands,
the way of holiness;. The.unclean | shall not pass through it.; But he himself shall be with them, walking in the
way; And the foolish | shall not | err there I in. No lion shall be there; Norshal the tyrant ftie beasts | come up | thitleri, But the red irehshall | walk | in it; Yca, the rans med of the Lord I shall re , turn.
They shall come to Zion with triumrk:
For behold, saith the Lord,
For lo ! I rale Jerusalem full of joy, and; her |
piepile sfigarness; And I wil esult in Jerusalem, and rejoice / in my,
And there shall not be heard any | more there in "The voice of weeping, and the cry of distress.
No more shall there be an infant | short | livedl,
boy, And the sinner that dieth at a hundred years, I shall
be held ac cursed.
They shall build houses, and I shall in i habit them; They shall plant vineyards, and shall | eat the fruit
there of. They shall not build, and another in habit; They shall not plant, , and an | other | eat.
For as the days of a tree, shall be the days of myy
people; Yea, long shall they enjoy the works of | tlreir own |
hands. My chosen shall not | labour in vain; Nor bring forth children | for early death.
For they shall be a seed blessed of the Lord;
The wolf and the lamb shall feed together,
