Songs from Isaiah

In his book Isaiah, Prince of Old Testament Prophets, B. A. Copass included an appendix of "Familiar Songs Based Wholly or in Part on the Teachings of Isaiah." In conclusion he wrote, "The above list could be extended greatly. Try it." Here is Copass's list, plus more that I and others have added. Do you know of others?

In addition, he mentioned passages from Handel's Messiah (which is out of my league).
