    I chose the song of Hezekiah (Isaiah 38:10-20) for a Cardiphonia compilation on the theme of canticles. You’ll remember that Hezekiah was told he would die, but he prayed for reprieve reminding the Lord of his faithfulness. God sent Isaiah to tell Hezekiah that his prayer had been heard and that he would give him 15 more years of life. In response, Hezekiah sang this song of thanksgiving. The canticle boldly reminds God that “dead people don’t praise the Lord.” I liked how it connected with laments in the Psalms, and mirrored Christ’s descent into death and resurrection. Verse 1 is Hezekiah, verse 2 is Psalm 22, and the final verse is I Corinthians, spoken.
