Wrath Overcome

From Blog09

Sing praise to the LORD for anger diverted,
For wrath overcome, for sinners converted--
Salvation by faith in His self-giving Son;
Sing praise to the LORD for each new life begun.

Come--trust in the LORD. Approach without fear:
If you turn from all sin, He'll let you draw near.
With joy you will draw from salvation springs--
Fresh water of life that bubbles and sings.
Then you'll call for all to join you in praise
With thanks to the LORD, the Ancient of Days
Who's fresh as today, with mercies still new
For those who will trust, old sinners like you.

You will say in that day: "I will give thanks to you, O LORD, for though you were angry with me, your anger turned away, that you might comfort me.
"Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the LORD GOD is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation."
With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.
And you will say in that day: "Give thanks to the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the peoples, proclaim that his name is exalted.

--Isaiah 12:1-4, ESV
