26. The Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto 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 them that are bound. ISA. 61: 1.
Jesus, lover of my soul,
Let me to thy bosom fly,
While the raging billows roll,
While the tempest still is high.
Hide me. O my Savior hide,
Till the storm of life is past;
Safe into the haven guide,
Oh receive my soul at last.
To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; to appoint unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. ISA. 62: 2,3.
