God’s Truth-Tellers – Isaiah (Trinity season, Christmas)

 
$5.00 (USD)

“Isaiah” is a song for children, either in Vacation Bible School, Church School or with a children’s message.  Receiving a call as a young man, Isaiah gave hard truths to Judah and Jerusalem.  For their misdeeds and sinful ways, their nation would fall and some taken into exile. However, a remnant would return. The prophet also speaks of a coming “suffering servant.”  This song is one of eight about prophets (God’s Truth-tellers). An adult education course created by the authors of the song includes these songs as a resource.

Price:  $5.00  (USD)

Image: The prophet Isaiah uses many stories to tell of God’s love. He spoke of his people being like sheep with God as Shepherd.
