Then the lame shall leap like a deer. Isaiah 35:6
We in the Mississippi Delta have contributed nothing to our salvation except the sin from which we need to be redeemed. Our toes are stubbed and our feet are lame from kicking against the goads.
Yet, You, gracious Lord, have sent Your Son, and our feet leap upon the mountains! We lift our voice in song,
Good news! Jesus comes! Our God reigns! God has comforted His people and redeemed them. He is our salvation.
Hosanna in the highest! Glory to God! On earth peace to those on whom His favor rests.
Amen. Amen. Amen.
Quotation of Archbishop William Temple, Acts 26:14, Isaiah 52:7-10, Luke 2:14
