During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

The First song of Isaiah

Surely, it is God who saves me; I will trust in him

Published in 8 hymnals

Representative Text

Antiphon:
Sing the praises of the Lord,
for he has done great things.

1. Surely, it is God who saves me;
I will trust in him and not be afraid.

2. For the Lord is my stronghold
and my sure defense,
and he will be my Savior.

3. Therefore you shall draw water
with rejoicing
form the springs of salvation.

4. And on that day you shall say,
Give thanks to the Lord and
call upon his Name;

5. Make his deeds known
among the peoples;
see that they remember
that his Name is exalted.

6. Sing the praises of the Lord,
for he has done great things,
and this is known in all the world.

7. Cry aloud, inhabitants of Zion,
ring out your joy,
for the great one in the midst of you
is the Holy One of Israel. [Ant.]

Glory to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
As it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen. [Ant.]
