101. Comfort, Comfort, O My People  [Poli Pumehana]  SJV: 228

1. “Comfort, comfort, O my people, tell of peace,” thus says our God; Comfort those whose hearts are shrouded, mourning under sorrow’s load.  Speak unto Jerusalem of the peace that waits for them; Tell them that their sins I cover, and their warfare now is over.

2. For the herald’s voice is calling in the desert far and near, Bidding us to make repentance since the realm of God is here.  O that warning cry obey!  Now prepare for God a way; Let the valleys rise in meeting and the hills bow down in greeting.

3. Straight shall be what long was crooked, and the rougher places plain!  Let your hearts be true and humble, for Messiah’s holy reign.  For God’s glory evermore shall be known o’er all the world; And all flesh shall see the token that God’s word is never broken.
