Isaiah 11 is from Rain For Roots album Waiting Songs.
Not long to wait now.
Christmas is tomorrow.
And we’re another day closer to Jesus’ return!

The lyrics:
A green shoot will sprout up from Jesse
The roots will grow a budding branch
A wolf will dwell with a gentle lamb
They’ll leap and play in the green, green grass

A little child will lead them
A little child will lead them
The lion and the lamb lie down together
A little child will lead them

A green shoot will sprout up from Jesse
The roots will grow a budding branch
A wolf will dwell with a gentle lamb
They’ll leap and play in the green, green grass

A little child will lead them
A little child will lead them
The lion and the lamb lie down together
A little child will lead them

[Read] On that day, Jesse’s Root will be raised high,
Posted as a rallying banner for the peoples
The nations will all come to Him
His headquarters will be glorious! [Isaiah 11:10 from The Message]

A green shoot will sprout up from Jesse
A banner of love like a melody
Singing “Come back children, come back, hurry”
Singing over you, singing over me

The good, good King will lead them
The good, good King will lead them
The spirit of the Lord will rest upon Him
The good, good King will lead us
The good, good King will lead us

The lion and the lamb lie down together
The good, good King will lead us
