“Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope.” Zech. 9.
W. Hammond 104th
Ye prisoners of hope, o’erwhelmèd with grief,
To Jesus look up for certain relief;
There’s no condemnation in Jesus the Lord,
But strong consolation his grace does afford.
Should justice appear a merciless foe,
Yet be of good cheer, and soon shall you know
That sinners, confessing their wickedness past,
A plentiful blessing of pardon shall taste.
Then dry up your tears, ye children of grief,
For Jesus appears to give you relief.
If you are returning to Jesus, your Friend,
Your sighing and mourning in singing shall end.
