Isaiah 12:1-6 - Exposition

THE SONG OF THANKSGIVING OF THE UNITED CHURCH . On each of her deliverances the Church is hound to praise God. In some parts of the Church it is customary on every such occasion to sing a "Te Deum." The ordinary Israelite hymn of praise appears to have been the hundred and thirty-sixth psalm ( 1 Chronicles 16:34 , 1 Chronicles 16:41 ; 2 Chronicles 5:13 ; 2 Chronicles 7:3 ; Ezra 3:11 ; Jeremiah 33:11 ; 1 Macc. 4:24); but on extraordinary occasions special thanksgivings were sung ( Exodus 15:1-21 ; 1 Samuel 7:1-17 :18-29, etc.). Isaiah is now inspired to give a pattern song, suitable for the Church to sing when she is reunited, enlarged, and restored to favor.
