Refreshing Renewal - Isaiah Series (7)

Tune: Halton Holgate

('Firmly I believe and truly')

Isaiah 43 v.18-21


The LORD says, Remember you not

The former things, old days lot

Dwell not on them, stay not in past

I do new thing that shall last


Now it shall spring forth, and shall you

Not know it, and it you view?

I will make way in wilderness

Dry, barren places  I bless


For I make rivers in desert

Bring comfort, not harm or hurt

Beasts of field, they shall honour me

Desert creatures too shall see


Shall see my workings, I shall give

Waters, rivers, so shall live

My people, my chosen they be

They shall quench their thirst full, free


This people now I have formed for

Myself, they be mine for sure

They shall show forth, declare my praise

To me worship and thanks raise

    This series goes on a bit! I've not stopped at EVERY chapter in Isaiah (66 of them). The series is ongoing, and may not be every day. I've picked out 'the good bits'

        • The Uneducated O.A.P

          Ok thanks, but I am about as religious as our pet Cockapoo, or as posh people say, Cockapoodle as I was informed while out walking her the other day. I was about to answer the snooty so and so, but the wife pulled me down the towpath for some unknown reason, lol
          still reading your words.
          Stay mad in a sane world
