Every Ditch and Valley (Isaiah 40)

A voice says cry out all men are like grass
And their time of glory soon shall pass
But the word of God it will never die
Surely it will stand for eternity

   Every ditch and valley shall be raised up
   Every hill and mountain be made low
   Every rugged place will be made flat
   Everybody shall see the glory of the Lord

You who bring good news raise your voice and shout
Do not be afraid to speak the name of God
The hard days are gone the debt has been paid
And the time has come to walk the righteous way


Psalm 41


1 Blessed is the one who considers the poor!
    In the day of trouble the Lord delivers him;
2 the Lord protects him and keeps him alive;
    he is called blessed in the land;
    you do not give him up to the will of his enemies.
3 The Lord sustains him on his sickbed;
    in his illness you restore him to full health.

4 As for me, I said, "O Lord, be gracious to me;
    heal me, for I have sinned against you!"

5 My enemies say of me in malice,
    "When will he die, and his name perish?"

6 And when one comes to see me, he utters empty words,
    while his heart gathers iniquity;

    when he goes out, he tells it abroad.
7 All who hate me whisper together about me;
    they imagine the worst for me.

8 They say, "A deadly thing is poured out on him;
    he will not rise again from where he lies."

9 Even my close friend in whom I trusted,
    who ate my bread, has lifted his heel against me.

10 But you, O Lord, be gracious to me,
      and raise me up, that I may repay them!

11 By this I know that you delight in me:
      my enemy will not shout in triumph over me.

12 But you have upheld me because of my integrity,
      and set me in your presence forever.

13 Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
      from everlasting to everlasting!
    Amen and Amen.

God Rest ye Merry, Gentlemen

God rest ye merry, gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember Christ our Savior
Was born on Christmas Day
To save us all from Satan's pow'r
When we were gone astray

   O tidings of comfort and joy
   Comfort and joy!
   O tidings of comfort and joy

From God our heav'nly Father
A blessed angel came
And unto certain shepherds
Brought tidings of the same
How that in Bethlehem was born
The Son of God by name

"Fear not, then," said the angel
"Let nothing you afright
This day is born a Savior
Of a pure virgin bright
To free all those who trust in him
From Satan's power and might."

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

Hark, the hearald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King
Peace on earth and mercy mild
God and sinners reconciled"
Joyful all ye nations rise
Join the triumph of the skies
With th'angelic host proclaim
"Christ is born in Bethlehem"
Hark, the hearld angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!

Christ by highest heav'n adored
Christ, the everlasting Lord
Late in time behold him come
Offspring of a virgin's womb
Veiled in flesh, the Godhead see
Hail, th'incarnate Deity
Pleased as man with men to dwell
Jesus, our Emmanuel
Hark, the herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!"

Hail, the heav'n-born Prince of Peace
Hail the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all he brings
Ris'n with healing in his wings
Mild he lays his glory by
Born that man no more may die
Born to raise the sons of earth
Born to give us second birth
Hark, the hearald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!"

Silent Night

Silent night! Holy night!
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin mother and child!
Holy infant, so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night! Holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories streams from heaven afar
Heavenly host sing: "Alleluia"

Christ the Savior is born
Christ the Savior is born

Silent night! Holy night!
Son of God, love's pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth

Behold my Servant #4 (Pierced for our Transgressions)

Steve Gilbertson
Isaiah 52:7-53:12

Today we explore the most famous of the great Servant Songs in Isaiah. It is the
fourth, and climactic song, wherein the ultimate rescue of all God's creation is found
in the Servant who will suffer on behalf of Israel. But who is this Servant, and how
does his suffering fulfill God's rescue plan? We will explore that today.

Isaiah 50:4-11

7    How beautiful upon the mountains
          are the feet of him who brings good news,
      who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness,
          who publishes salvation,
          who says to Zion, "Your God reigns."
8    The voice of your watchmen-they lift up their voice;
          together they sing for joy;
      for eye to eye they see
          the return of the Lord to Zion.
9    Break forth together into singing,
          you waste places of Jerusalem,
      for the Lord has comforted his people;
          he has redeemed Jerusalem.
10   The Lord has bared his holy arm
          before the eyes of all the nations,
      and all the ends of the earth shall see
          the salvation of our God.

11   Depart, depart, go out from there;
           touch no unclean thing;
      go out from the midst of her; purify yourselves,
           you who bear the vessels of the Lord.
12   For you shall not go out in haste,
           and you shall not go in flight,
      for the Lord will go before you,
           and the God of Israel will be your rear guard.

13   Behold, my servant shall act wisely;
           he shall be high and lifted up,
           and shall be exalted.
14   As many were astonished at you-
           his appearance was so marred, beyond human semblance,
           and his form beyond that of the children of mankind-
15   so shall he sprinkle many nations.
           Kings shall shut their mouths because of him,
      for that which has not been told they they see,
           and that which they have not heard they understand.
53   Who has believed what he has heard from us?
            And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
2     For he grew up before him like a young plant,
            and like a root out of dry ground;
       he had no form or majesty that we should look at him,
            and no beauty that we should desire him.
3     He was despised and rejected by men,
            a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief;
       and as one from whom men hide their faces
            he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

4     Surely he has borne our griefs
            and carried our sorows;
       yet we esteemed him stricken,
            smitten by God, and afflicted.
5     But he was pierced for our transgressions;
            he was crushed for our iniquities;
       upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
            and with his wounds we are healed.
6     All we like sheep have gone astray;
            we have turned-every one-to this own way;
       and the Lord has laid on him
            the iniquity of us all.

7     He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,
            yet he opened not his mouth;
       like a lamb that is led to the slaughter,
            and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent,
            so he opened not his mouth.
8     By oppression and judgment he was taken away;
            and as for his generation, who considered
       that he was cut off out of the land of the living,
            stricken for the transgression of my people?
9     And they made his grave with the wicked
            and with a rich man in his death,
       although he had done no violence,
            and there was no deceit in his mouth.

10    Yet it was the will of the Lord to crush him;
            he has put him to grief,
       when his soul makes an offering for guilt,
            he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days;
       the will of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
11    Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied;
       by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant,
            make many to be accounted righteous,
            and he shall bear their iniquities.
12    Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many,
            and he shall divide the spoil with the strong,
       because he poured out his soul to death
            and was numbered with the transgressors;
       yet he bore the sin of many,
            and makes intercession for the transgressors.
