Composer: Thomas Williams, 1789 Harm. Lowell Mason (1792-1872)
Author: Jane Parker Huber, 1976
Scripture: Isaiah 61 Luke 4:16-20
Theme: Life in Christ
1. Live into hope of captives freed,
Of sight regained, the end of greed.
The oppressed shall be the first to see
The year of God's own jubilee!
2. Live into hope the blind shall see
With insight and with clarity,
Removing shades of pride and fear --
A vision of our God brought near.
3. Live into hope of liberty,
The right to speak, the right to be,
The right to have one's daily bread,
To hear God's word and thus be fed.
4. Live into hope of captives freed
From chains of fear or want or greed.
God now proclaims our full release
To faith and hope and joy and peace.
