My Servant, Israel

My Servant, Israel
(Isaiah 43)

Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
Fear not – I have called you by name,
And you are Mine!
When you pass through the waters,
Fear not – I will be with you all the time.

Through rivers you will pass,
But they will not overflow;
Through the fire you will walk,
As the flames and embers glow;
But you will not even be scorched,
Nor shall you suffer a burn,
For the Lord, the Holy One is your Saviour –
Oh Israel, won’t you learn?

You are precious in My sight –
I have honoured and I will love you;
Though you blindly walk in night,
My glory will shine above you;
I, the Lord, have formed you,
Behold, I have called you by My name;
I will exchange your life for others,
And ransom you with the same.

Fear not, My children,
I will gather you to Me;
Though you have ears and you have eyes,
You are deaf and cannot see;
I have made you to be My witnesses;
Oh My servant, hear My voice:
There are no other gods, but Me –
I Am your only choice.

It is I who have declared,
I have proclaimed and I will save;
I will rescue from captivity
All of Mine who are enslaved;
I Am from eternity;
All I have created I hold within My hand;
Is there any other who can deliver?
Tell Me now if you can.

Remember not your past, oh Israel.
Though it was for you I parted the Red Sea;
I did this for My people,
So you would praise and glorify Me;
Behold, now I will do something new,
Something that has never before been done:
I will wipe out all your sins for My sake,
If you will just call upon My Son.

For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him,
should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16
