The Messenger (Isaiah 52:7)

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.”

Isaiah 52:7 (ESV)

The Prophet Isaiah (Bible Card from 1904)

There is a shout from the mountain,
a herald calls out to the captives.
He is coming
to proclaim a victory,
won for those who know of love
and long to dwell in its embrace.

The messenger announces
good news,
a new way.
A life in the spirit,
no longer of the flesh.
A life of peace
not war.

I listen to him shout.
My soul clings to every word.
How marvelous the works
of this Lord
who stoops down
to touch my brow.
