Verse 5 He speaks, and, listening to His voice, new life the dead receive, The mournful, broken hearts rejoice, the humble poor believe. Verse 6 Hear Him, ye deaf; His praise, ye dumb, your loosened tongues employ; Ye blind, behold your Savior come, and leap, ye lame, for joy. Verse 7 In Christ your Head, you then shall know, shall feel your sins forgiven; Anticipate your heaven below, and own that love is heaven. Verse 8 Glory to God, and praise and love be ever, ever given, By saints below and saints above, the church in earth and heaven. Verse 9 On this glad day the glorious Sun of Righteousness arose; On my benighted soul He shone and filled it with repose. Verse 10 Sudden expired the legal strife, 'twas then I ceased to grieve; My second, real, living life I then began to live....
