Isaiah 12:5-6. “Sing unto the Lord: for He hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth. Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.”
When I was in the touring choir in Bible college, we sang a piece of music from this passage that has been haunting me. I can’t pull it up; can’t remember if it’s from Handel’s Messiah or not. I remember that the line “therefore with joy shall ye draw water from the wells of salvation” was in the song; also, “Cry out and shout, ye people of God!” But that’s it. Anyone who may have been in the Pillsbury Baptist Bible College choir from 1965-67, if you can help me out, maybe I could get some sleep 🙂
These two verses wrap up this short but powerful and very exciting chapter. It has been such a blessing to me to take my time through these verses, dwelling on each phrase, sometimes each word. To consider the freedom all people will have in the Millenial Kingdom to praise God without restraint; to have Him dwelling among us!
It’s something to sing about!
This isn’t the music I’m thinking of, but it’s pretty, and I like it:
And here is the one I was remembering. My son Mike found it. Don’t think he was in the choir back then, but he sure knows how to search 🙂
