The gates are opened wide
The gates of Zion,
For a time they will stream in, my children,
From all points of the compass,
The Lord will send you.

Do you not know,
Have you not seen,
A great and mighty thing,
A highway for my people
And the Lord will bring them back,
To the land of his inheritance,
Israel.

Israel, clap your hands, dance and sing,
Rejoice in your king,
Bow down and worship,
for the Lord your God has done a might thing.
Nations are given names,
But you are known as the children of God,
Zion my daughter returns,
And Jerusalem will once more be cleansed.

Turn your heart to the Lord,
And once more He will heal your land,
Springs will break out in a dry and thirsty land.
Crops will grow and pasture cover it.

Wait upon the Lord,
For whoever waits upon the Lord will be blessed.
Eyes will opened and ears unstopped.
For once more He will take possession of Israel,
And Jerusalem.
The apostasy,
The wicked thing that stands on His holy hill,
Will be no more.

Listen for His voice O Zion,
Rejoice once more in His presence,
For he will return and you will see it.
Praise the Lord,
King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.

From everlasting to everlasting,
Your name is to be praised,
Lord God of Israel.
Grant us wisdom and knowledge,
That we may walk in your way.
You are ever before me, O Lord,
Leading and guiding me,
On the straight path.

Gather all you nations,
And devise your wicked schemes,
Draw up your pacts,
Your secret treaties,
Your leaders are fools,
They think in their hearts,
No one sees.

The poor are plundered,
The oppressed beaten down,
No justice is in the land,
The wicked exchange bribes,
and false witnesses arise.
Each person goes their own way.

The land is defiled,
The earth trembles under violence,
Neighbour accuses neighbour,
The members of your own household,
No one speaks the truth,
Good is seen as evil,
And evil is seen as good.

Do you not know?
Do you not fear the God of Israel?
Is there anyone with a clean heart?
Yes, For the Lord has hidden them,
Two witnesses will arise.
Their days are numbered to do the Lords will.

Arise, arise, stretch out your arm, O Lord,
Rebuke the nations,
Call them to account.
There is still time,
But the nations will not listen.

So the Lord, will stretch out His arm,
All at once they will be destroyed
On the hill tops and in the valleys,
Run, flee and do not look back,
Do not go back to gather your possessions.
For the wrath of God is mighty,
To those who come against His anointed.

Thanksgiving and praise be to our God,
For His hand will rule,
With righteousness and justice forever.
