Lyrics:

O comfort my people and calm all their fear,
And tell them the time of salvation draws near.
O tell them I come to remove all their shame.
Then they will, forever, give praise to my name.

Proclaim to the cities of Judah my word;
That “gentle yet strong is the hand of the Lord”.
I rescue the captives, my people defend,
And bring them to justice and joy without end.

All mountains and hills shall become as a plain,
For vanished are mourning and hunger and pain.
And never again shall these war against you.
Behold I come quickly to make all things new.
