Wrought as Written

"The street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times" (Daniel 9:25).  "The wall was finished… and all… perceived that this work was wrought of our God" (Nehemiah 6:15,16).  "The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple… enlightening the eyes" (Psalm 19:7,8).  "He cast out the spirits with His word and healed all that were sick: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses" (Matthew 8:2,3,17). 

The wall was finished and would stand,  
As Daniel clearly had foretold,
And all perceived it was God's hand
That wrought this work they could behold. 

The testimony of the Lord
Will make the simple to be wise,
When prophecies have been explored
Enlightening the seeker's eyes. 

Isaiah's prophecy was written,
Announcing healing deep within,
And to this end our Lord was smitten,
For He Himself has borne our sin. 

O Lord, the work You wrought for us
Was written in the prophet's scroll. 
We find it more than marvelous
That You would die to save our soul!
