Comfort in Isaiah (6): Israel's Restoration Part 1

Tune: Aurelia

('The church's one foundation')

Isaiah 43 v.1 - 7 parts


The LORD formed and created

His help not abated

Unto His people, for He

Says 'Fear not' to them, see

For I have you redeeméd

Called you by name, have led

You in my way, you are mine

Shall have blessings divine


When through the waters you pass

You need not cry 'Alas'

For i will be there with you

Through the rivers, 'tis true

They shall not you overflow

My presence you shall know

And when you walk through the fire

It shall not be dread, dire


For you shall not be burned there

But shall protected fare

Nor shall any flame scorch you

I keep you from them too

For I am the LORD your God

With you the path have trod

The Holy One of Israel

Of me each tongue shall tell


Fear not, for I am with you

And will you sure renew

Will restore, bring you from east

And from west, greatest, least

And from the north and south too

My sons and daughters you

Each one called by my name sure

Fro my glory e'ermore
