Ho, ye rem-nant op-pressed,

Scattered, bruised, and dis-tressed,

'Mong the nations in sadness that mourn;

Your captiv-i-ty's broke,

Come away from the stroke,

And to Zi-on in gladness re-turn.

Lo a prophet of old,

Of a highway hath told,

Where the ransom'd of Israel may go,

Your Deliverer hath come,

And he calleth you home,

That his mercy and peace you may know.

Come to Salem again,

And forever remain,

In the places where David hath been;

Lo in David's own mount

God hath opened a fount,

For your guilt, your transgression, and sin.

Let the leprous appear,

And be purified here,

And be banished from Zion no more

On the Saviour believe,

And his mercy receive,

And before him devoutly adore.
