1974.) Thanksgiving Day

Isaiah 12 (The Message)

My Strength and Song

1 And you will say in that day,
“I thank you, God.
You were angry
but your anger wasn’t forever.
You withdrew your anger
and moved in and comforted me.

2“Yes, indeed—God is my salvation.
I trust, I won’t be afraid.
God—yes God!—is my strength and song,
best of all, my salvation!”

3-4Joyfully you’ll pull up buckets of water
from the wells of salvation.
And as you do it, you’ll say,
“Give thanks to God.
Call out his name.
Ask him anything!
Shout to the nations, tell them what he’s done,
spread the news of his great reputation!

5-6“Sing praise-songs to God. He’s done it all!
Let the whole earth know what he’s done!
Raise the roof! Sing your hearts out, O Zion!
The Greatest lives among you: The Holy of Israel.”

Music:

May you have a Happy Thanksgiving praising God for all his good gifts!

My son Devlin and I kid about many modern praise songs seeming to be “I sing about myself singing to God,” and this is one which fits that description — but the words go nicely with Isaiah 12.   HERE   is “Top of my Lungs”  by Phillips, Craig & Dean.
