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
Out of the wells of sal | vation.

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 ;
Nor beauty | thạt we should de 1 sire him.
He is despised and re 1 jected of men ;
A man of sorrows, I and acquainted with grief;
And we hid as it were our | faces | from him ;
He was despised, and I we es | teemed him | not.
Surely our infirmities | he hath | borne,
And our surrows, / he hath | cạrried them;
Yet we esteemed him striken | from a | bove,
Smitten of God, and af | fiicted.
But he was wounded for our trans / gressions;
He was bruised for our iniquities.
The chastisement, by which cur peace is effected,

was I laid up | on him ;
And by his stripes, / we are | healed.
All wc, like sheep, have gone a stray;
We have turned, every | cne to I his own | way
And the Lord bath | laid on him
The iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed, he was afflicted ;
Yet he / opened | nt his | mouth,

He was brought as a | lamb to the slaughter ;
And as a sheep before her shearers is uumb, so he

opened not his mouth.

By oppression and judgment he was taken a | way;
And his manner of | life, who would declare ?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;
For the transgression of my people, he was smitten

to death.

His grave was appointed with the wicked;
But with the rich man | was his | tomb.
Although he had done no violence,
Neither was there any deceit | in his mouth.
It pleased the Lord to | crush him with | sorrow,
But, since he gave his like a | sacri , fice för / sin,
He shall see a seed which shall pro | long their | days,
And the pleasure of the Lord shall ( prosper | in

his hands.

Of the travail of his soul, he shall / see the fruit,
And - he shall be satisfied.
By the knowledge of him shall my servant lead

many to righteousness,
For he shall bear their iniquities.

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,
And confirm the I tottering | knees:
Say ye to the faint learted, ! Be ve I strong !
bear ye ! not; be | hold your | God!
Then shall be unclosed the eves of the ' blind,
And the ears of the I deat shall be opened ;
For in the wilderness shall | burst forth | waiers,
And / torrents | in tłe | desert.
And a highway shal be there; and it shall be called:

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:
And perpetual joy shall | crown their heads :
Joy and gladness shail they obtain ;'
And surrow and signing shall flee a / way.

For behold, saith the Lord,
ly create new htavens and a new earth,
And the firmer ores shall | mat leje i membered,
Neither shall they le brught in mind any | mure.

For lo ! I rale Jerusalem full of joy, and; her |

piepile sfigarness; And I wil esult in Jerusalem, and rejoice / in my,

pe.ple.

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,
Nor an old man who hath | not full filled his ! days:
For he that dieth at a hundred years, shall | die al

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;
They, and their offspring after themy.
Before they call, | I will | answer;
And while they are yet | speaking, I will | hear.

The wolf and the lamb shall feed together,
And the lion shall eat | straw I like the ox.
They shall not hurt | nor des i troy
In all my holy | mountain, saith the Lord.

ISAIAH. XXXV. LXV. 17–25.
