The Deaf Shall Hear


Isaiah 29:18

(By a deaf person about an interpreter)

I watched those swiftly moving hands

and could not help but stop and look.

To me, it was a wondrous theme,

see, not heard, from God’s book.

Those hands were speaking of Christ

our Lord, who died upon the tree,

A message from the Book that tells

of love He gives for you and me.

And as I watched, my heart was thrilled

as if I stood on a sacred spot;

For there she was interpreting Christ

to those whose ears were stopped.

How wonderful to see those hands

sign a message, strong and clear,

that Christ the King shall come again

and call the deaf, who then shall hear!
