YOU Choir The Good News 1978
The Bethlehem Y–O–U Choir performing “The Good News” in 1978


This song was written for the hope and comfort of all men, women and children, no matter what race, color or creed. An individual is extremely blessed if he or she could pass through this 2nd earth age without some problems or difficulties during their lifetime.

Down through the ages, the best of men and women with their superior talents and abilities have tried to solve the difficulties that have plagued the human race. There will come a time when the solutions that are proposed by men have run there course. It will be at that time that God will intervene in the affairs of men. Even today, most know their weaknesses and frailties and realize that they need a savior. The “Good News” (Gospel) is taken from the book of the prophet Isaiah.

Isaiah 35: 1, “ The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice , and blossom like a rose. Verse 3, “Strengthen ye the weak hands and feeble knees”. Verse 4: “Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: Behold your God will come with a vengeance, even God with recompense: He will come and save you.” Verse 5: “Then the eyes of the blind will be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped”. Verse 6: “then shall the lame man leap as a heart, and the tongue of the dumb shall sing : for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.”


God will do for us what we can’t do for ourselves.

John 5:17, But Jesus answered them, “ My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.

God, through Jesus, is working out His purpose to bring blessings and eternal life to all of His children. He is changing the nature of men and woman in the likeness of His divine nature. How else could we understand the fulfillment of a future event as in Isaiah?

Isaiah 2: 4, (last part of verse)“Nations shall not left up sword against nation; neither shall they learn war anymore”.

God’s word, the Bible, gives us the hope, healing and comfort that this song provides.
