The Lord God appointed

The Lord God appointed
the way of salvation,
by sending his own Son
to die in our place;
to preach the good tidings
of our liberation-
for those who receive him,
the promise of grace.

2. So Jesus came bringing
an end to our sadness,
forgiveness and healing,
the year of the Lord.
He lifts up the broken
and fills them with gladness;
the blind are enlightened
and led by his word.

3. He comforts the weary
with hope for tomorrow,
releases the prisoner
from sin and its fear;
gives beauty for ashes
and joy for their sorrow;
a garment of praise
for the soul in despair.
