Here’s a Promise We Can Count On! (preview)

Biblical Text: Isaiah 2:1-5
Tune: Polish Carol

W ZLOBIE LEZY (“Infant Holy, Infant Lowly”)

Here’s a promise we can count on!
It’s the word Isaiah saw:
One day coming, God’s own mountain
Will be highest of them all.
All the nations will be yearning
For God’s teaching, and returning,
They’ll find guidance in God’s law.

On that day of celebration,
All will listen to the Lord.
God will judge between the nations
Till all justice is restored.
Out of weapons made for harming
They will fashion tools for farming
And they’ll put aside the sword.

One great day, the prophet told us,
God will triumph! It is true.
Lord, we trust this word of promise
As we hear your word anew.
When we’re lost among the mountains
Of the world’s ways that confound us,
Show the path that leads to you.
