Comfort in Isaiah(8): Israel's Restoration Part 3



 

Tune: Christchurch

('Now is eternal life')

Isaiah 44 v.1 -6

*******

Hear now you, my people

I formed you, you I call

You be my chosen ones

My daughters and my sons

Fear not, for I will help you sure

You shall be mine for evermore

 

Water I will outpour

Each land, from shore to shore

To quench you that do thirst

Floods on dry ground outburst

Yes, on your seed too, and on you

I pour out my spirit anew

 

And I shall bless your kin

Blessings shall be therein

They shall as grass spring up

Shall feed with me and sup

As willows by the water course

They shall grow, this I do endorse

 

One shall say, I the LORD's 

Am, true as be His words

They shall be Israel

Restored by Him, shall tell

That He is their redeemer strong

he the first and last all along

    Orchi,

    Just spoke with my mom in Italy! She misses me reading your hymn-poems! After she had listened to the tune that accompanied the reads, a peaceful look I’d see on her face! Amen to that!
