Great joy

Awake, and hear the words
which I shall tell thee;
for behold,
I am come
to declare unto you
the glad tidings
of great joy.

For behold,
the time cometh,
and is not far distant,
that with power,
the Lord Omnipotent
who reigneth,
who was, and is
from all eternity
to all eternity,
shall come down
from heaven
among the children of men,
and shall dwell
in a tabernacle of clay,
and shall go forth
amongst men,
working mighty miracles,
such as healing the sick,
raising the dead,
causing the lame to walk,
the blind to receive their sight,
and the deaf to hear,
and curing all manner of diseases.

And he shall cast out devils,
or the evil spirits
which dwell in the hearts
of the children of men.

And lo,
he shall suffer temptations,
and pain of body,
hunger, thirst, and fatigue,
even more than
man can suffer,
except it be unto death;
for behold,
blood cometh from every pore,
so great shall be his anguish
for the wickedness
and the abominations
of his people.

And he shall be called
Jesus Christ, the Son of God,
the Father of heaven and earth,
the Creator of all things
from the beginning;
and his mother
shall be called Mary.

And lo,
he cometh unto his own,
that salvation might come
unto the children of men
even through faith on his name;
and even after all this
they shall consider him a man,
and say that he hath a devil,
and shall scourge him,
and shall crucify him.

And he shall rise
the third day
from the dead;
and behold,
he standeth
to judge the world;
and behold,
all these things are done
that a righteous judgment
might come upon
the children of men.
