Hopeful Help - Isaiah Series (8)



Tune: Capetown

('Gracious Spirit, Holy Ghost')

Isaiah 44 v.1 - 7 parts

***********

Hear Israel, my chosen

And my servant, you the one

I who have made you, Fear not

Prosperous your lot

 

For I will help you, here see

Water pour to the thirsty

And floods give upon dry ground

Here refreshment found

 

And I my spirit will pour

On you, your descendant sure

They shall spring up midst the grass

I not you bypass

 

You shall be as willows set

By the rivers, and shall yet

Call yourselves by my name, for

I the LORD e'ermore

 

So says the LORD, He the King

Of Israel, to Him sing

Their Redeemer, LORD of hosts

Unto farthest coasts

 

He the first and last, there be

No other God beside He

Who like him can do or say?

There none else today
