Salvation Scenes - Isaiah Series (10)



Tune: Hanover

('O worship the King')

Isaiah 45 v.17-25 parts

***********

Israel shall be saved by the LORD, it true

With everlasting salvation anew

They shall not be ashamed, nor be they disgraced

Nor confounded, though their troubles they had faced

 

For thus says the LORD, He God, Creator

Of heaven and earth, He made them all sure

Not made in vain, but to be inhabited

By all His creatures, He them has established

 

Look to me, be saved, all unto the ends

Of the earth, for I am God, who you tends

And there is none else, so it shall come to be

Every knee shall bow, each tongue confess unto me

 

In the LORD all Israel's descendants

Shall be justified, and His presence sense

They shall the LORD glorify, He God alone

His Son Jesus Christ does for mankind atone

    Good one Orchi. I managed to get the words in with the odd bit of wobbling.

      Thanks Gold. A few words can be tricky, e.g 'Israel' could be 'Is-rail' or 'Is-ray-el'; 'heaven' could be as 'hennn' (one syllable), or 'hev-un' (two syllables)! Do shut up now Orchi - enough waffle! lol.

        Ah the Save-a-Syllabe Society will be proud of you.

          Thanks M. Yes, I must use more words like 'heav'n', 'e'ermore', etc, to save syllables. Is there a shortage of them these days? But then - will the Apostrophe Society be on to me, for using too many? Or, e.g. 'The Missing E's' Society'?
