Hymn: Such a scandal, Cyrus chosen

Proper 24 year A

Isaiah 45: 1 – 7

Such a scandal, Cyrus chosen,

could he set God's people free?

God's anointed they would call him;

source of grace and liberty?

Who would choose the chief oppressor,

tyrant who'd repress and kill,

giving him the chief vocation,

make him subject to God's will...
