Hasten the Day

Hasten the Day
Prepared for the conclusion of a sermon on Isaiah 40:1–11,  “Prepare the Way of the Lord,” preached at Kenwood Baptist Church on January 2, 2010.

The Lord will come, prepare the way;
The Christ is slain, hasten the day;
He rose again, so we can say
To all who hear: Prepare the way!

His glory shines; his arm will rule.
He will repay to every fool
Who won’t repent the deeds done cruel.
Come Lord Jesus, in wrath to rule.

Now see the Judge so tender grow,
And steadfast lovingkindness show,
To all who their own weakness know,
And therefore take his easy yoke.

Like heavens high above the earth,
His love toward those who know his worth.

One response to “Hasten the Day

  1. Nice! I am preparing to teach BSF women Isaiah 35-36 this week and to challenge BSFers to worship a God who avenges ( Psalm 94) and who redeems those who trust in Him. If we were living in the midst of the violence in Mexico and the evil of the drug cartels we would long for Him to come in His wrath and justice and worship Him for this attribute and action.
