Hymn of Confession and Assurance: “Bless’d Be the God of Israel”  (tune only: Ellacombe)

Bless’d be the God of Israel, Who comes to set us free;
He visits and redeems us; He grants us liberty.
The prophets spoke of mercy, of freedom and release;
God shall fulfill his promise, and bring his people peace.

2 He from the house of David, a child of grace has giv’n;
A Savior comes among us, to raise us up to heav’n.
Before him goes his herald, Forerunner in the way,
The prophet of salvation, the harbinger of day.

3 On prisoners of darkness, the sun begins to rise,
The dawning of forgiveness, upon the sinner’s eyes.
He guides the feet of pilgrims, along the paths of peace.
Oh, bless our God and Savior, with songs that never cease!
