For how I wish to speak, but I can’t, my heart is mixed with peace but also sorrow. Because, I grieve for the souls of those who are crying in silence, who eager to see their salvation and their God move with might and power to rescue them from the grips of their troubles. Oh, that they may know the Lord thy God that he is tender to the broken-hearted and swift to those who call on his name.
Jesus, heal today and give strength to the weary and faint. That they may come to know you, their salvation. May this be their day of rest, equal to that of the strong!
19 Therefore this is what the Lord says:
“If you repent, I will restore you that you may serve me; if you utter worthy, not worthless, words, you will be my spokesman. Let these people turn to you, but you must not turn to them.
20 I will make you a wall to this people, a fortified wall of bronze; they will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you to rescue and save you,” declares the Lord. 21 “I will save you from the hands of the wicked and deliver you from the grasp of the cruel.”
