This week we continue our search for “A New Hope For The New Year” as we turn to sing a song of praise from Isaiah 25. We will discover the hope that we have of feasting with Jesus when he returns.
1 In that day, everyone in the land of Judah will sing this song:
Our city is strong!
We are surrounded by the walls of God’s salvation.
2 Open the gates to all who are righteous;
allow the faithful to enter.
3 You will keep in perfect peace
all who trust in you,
all whose thoughts are fixed on you!
4 Trust in the LORD always,
for the LORD GOD is the eternal Rock.
Isaiah 26:1-4 (NLT)
