This song tells us a very important story, like most songs do. It comes from the heart of God’s people, from across thousands of years, and still means something holy and hopeful every single time we sing it. With titles and word pictures taken from the prophet Isaiah’s conversations about the Messiah, we see all the ways Jesus has come to reconcile the world to himself. Each verse reminds us of a different promise God has bought into being, has made come true, in the person of Jesus.

An Invitation from Forward Movement
Forward Movement invites you to reflect this Advent… and perhaps be published in their 2018 Advent devotional!
God shapes our lives in ways we can’t always understand. I give thanks.
Every time I’ve allowed God to prune, uproot, and replant me, my actual wildest dreams and secret hopes have flowered and fruited in ways that were beyond my imaginings.
Getting Ready for the Year-End Sprint
This end-of-year sprint is familiar territory for all of us. And still, every year it rolls around and surprises us.
God’s love is for sharing – with one another and small creatures too.
God always gives us enough love, enough index cards, enough milk, enough snuggles, and compassion to share.
You sent thousands of cards to encourage others. Take a next step for yourself.
You’ve made me smile and cry and thank God for the goodness and love you’ve shown to so many people.
