There was something about this song and the words that just compelled me to dig into the Bible. I found that the word “Rescue” appears (84) times in the NIV version of the Bible. As I read through them, there it was Isaiah 46:4 – “Even to your old age and gray hairs I am He; I am He who will sustain you.
