ISAIAH 26

Beneath Your discipline

I search for You,

begging for help,

whispering a prayer (Isa 26:16)

 

I, who thought myself high and mighty

You bring down and humble.

To the ground, in the dust

You have cast me down. (Isa 26:5)

 

I thrashed in labor but bore no baby.

I gave birth to wind; I won no victory

I did not give salvation to the earth—

no deliverance from my efforts. (Isa 26:17,18)

 

CHORUS:

You keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You,

So I commit to You—lean on You—trust in You. (Isa 26:3)

O LORD my GOD, other lords besides You have ruled over me,

but Your name alone I now bring to remembrance. (Isa 26:13)

 

In the path of Your judgments, O LORD,

I wait for You;

Your name and remembrance

are the desires of my soul. (Isa 26:8)

 

All I have and am O LORD,

comes from You.

You ordain peace for me—

favor and blessings. (Isa 26:12)

my spirit within me earnestly seeks You.

For when Your judgments are in the earth,

I learn righteousness. (Isa 26:9)

HYMN OF TRIUMPH IN JESUS

“If God is on our side,

What matters who is against us?

He who spared not His own Son,

But surrendered Him to suffering for us all,

 

“How can He but, in giving Him,

lavish on us all things—all?

Who shall dare arraign God’s chosen ones?

God saith I am righteous—who dares condemn me to death?

 

“There is one who has died for me–our Messiah Jesus!

Died?—nay, He has risen from the dead:

He is throned at God’s right hand:

Yea, He is now interceding for me” (ref#38, p129, [Rom 8:31-34])!

PRAISE TO THE SPIRIT

To the SPIRIT of GOD, I exert my best praise:

You awoke the first thrill of life in my soul,

showed me my guilt and sealed my pardon.

dwell in my heart—

give me Your healing sanctifying,

comforting, and restoring grace.

 

Praise for Your influence,

which no ingratitude has quenched.

Praise for Your patience,

which no backsliding has exhausted.

 

You renew my intellect,

sanctify my heart,

inhabit my body

awaken every pulse of love.

 

I am a debtor to Your quickening mercy;

I owe You undivided and supreme affections.

To the SPIRIT of GOD,

I exert my best praise (ref#61, Sept 5th).

I SOUGHT THE LORD, AND AFTERWARD I KNEW

“I sought the Lord, and afterward I knew

He moved my soul to seek him, seeking me;

It was not I that found, O Savior true,

No, I was found of thee.

 

“Thou didst reach forth thy hand and mine enfold;

I walked and sank not on the storm-vexed sea,

‘Twas not so much that I on thee took hold,

As thou, dear Lord, on me.

 

“I find, I walk, I love, but, O the whole

Of love is but my answer, Lord, to thee;

For thou wert long beforehand with my soul,

Always thou lovedst me [anonymous, 1904],” Systematic Theology (ref#63, p708).

HYMN OF INCARNATION

“He, even when he subsisted in the form of God,

Did not…cling to His prerogative of equality with God:

Nay, tenantless of all that glory,

He assumed the form of a bondslave,

 

“And appeared in the likeness of man.

So was He found on earth as a man in outward seeming,

And abased Himself in rendering submission,

even to the death—A death upon the Cross!

 

“Because He stooped so low, God uplifted Him very high,

And hath freely given Him The Name—

The Name that is above every name, decreeing

‘In the name of Jesus shall every knee bend in prayer,

 

“Alike of dwellers in heaven, on earth, in the underworld,

And every tongue shall utter this confession,

‘Jesus the Messiah is Lord!’

So rendering glory to God the Father’” Arthur S. Way (ref#38, p155-156 [Phil 2:6-11]).

JESUS Is LORD

You sent Your Son into the world

so that I might live through Him (1 John 4:9).

All Your promises in Him are Yes,

and in Him Amen, to Your glory (2 Cor 1:20).

 

He is perfectly adapted to my needs

—holy, blameless, unstained by sin,

separated from sinners, and

exalted higher than the heavens (Heb 7:25,26).

 

My LORD JESUS CHRIST, the Messiah,

yielded Himself up to atone for my sin

and to save and sanctify me—

to rescue and deliver me from this present age (Gal 1:3-4).

 

In Him I was made Your heritage

and I obtained an inheritance (Eph 1:11).

In accordance with Your will and

purpose and plan, my FATHER (Gal 1:4).
