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, 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,
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.
