Comfort ye, comfort ye My people, saith your God; speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem; and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned. The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness:-Prepare ye the way of the Lord: make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill made low, the crooked straight and the rough places plain.

And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together; for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it

             [The above are words from Handel’s Messiah]

Jesus Christ saves sinners;

Sinners only does He save.

He can heal the broken hearted,

Raise the dead up from the grave,

The great Messiah of the skies

Restores sight to blinded eyes.

But He only touches them,

That realize that they need Him.  –eab, 3/’72
