Behold, thy salvation cometh. - Isaiah 62:11

The Lord's people may be now sorely tried and often cast down; but the present is the worst state they will ever be in; they are hastening to the day of God, which is to them the day of deliverance.

Their salvation is on the road; they will soon be freed from all disease, from which they now suffer; from all sin, under which they now groan; from all foes, of whom they are now afraid; and from all cares and troubles, with which they are now burdened.

Beloved, why are you so fearful, and why do desponding thoughts arise in your hearts? Behold, your salvation cometh; behold, His reward is with Him, and His work before Him. He will free you from all that pains you, and raise you above all you fear. The time of deliverance is at hand, the year of release is near; the trumpet of the Jubilee will soon be heard; our Saviour will arrive to lead us to our Father's house, to the mansions which He hath prepared for us, and so shall we be ever with the Lord.

Comfort one another with these words, "Behold, the bridegroom cometh, go ye out to meet Him!"

Jesus beckons from on high;
Fearless to His presence fly;
Thine the merits of His blood,
Thine the righteousness of God!
Go, His triumphs to adorn,
Made for God, to God return!
