The LORD sets the prisoners free; the LORD opens the eyes of the blind. The LORD lifts up those who are bowed down; the LORD loves the righteous. The LORD watches over the sojourners; he upholds the widow and the fatherless, but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin. (Psalm 146:8-9 ESV)
Hymn ELH 109:2-3 Hark the Glad Sound! The Savior Comes
He comes the prisoners to release,
In Satan’s bondage held.
The gates of brass before Him burst,
The iron fetters yield.
He comes the broken heart to bind,
The bleeding soul to cure,
And with the treasures of His grace
To enrich the humble poor.
Heavenly Father, thank You for releasing me from the prison of sin and opening the eyes of my faith to the righteousness earned for me through Jesus Christ, Your Son. In His name I pray. Amen.
