Go up, go up,
Bow down before the Lord,
Clap your hand over your mouth,
If you have slandered your neighbour,
Or gossiped in the street,
Bow down and repent.

Go up, go up,
Bow down before the Lord,
And go before those you have cheated,
Ask if they will forgive you,
And measure out the scales of justice,
and compassion,
Bow down and repent before the Lord.

Go up, go up,
Bow down before the Lord,
If you harbour wickedness and hate in your heart,
Pray for your enemies,
And cover your hate with love,
Bow down and repent before the Lord.

Go up, go up,
And humble yourself before the Lord,
Offer your thanksgiving and praise,
Only after you have repented,
Of the wickedness in your heart.
Speak what is right,
Seek justice, mercy and love,
Give to the poor,
Seek the Lord always.

Go up, go up,
And bow down before your God,
Who has great delight in you,
Bow down and offer your thanksgiving and praise,
And He will grant you His salvation.
For you will be called by name, a child of God,

He will look upon you,
And have great delight.
To serve Him is to serve those around you,
In humility, justice, honest scales and love.
Then your Lord and God will bless you,

Bring your heart and not your lips,
Bring your praise and thanksgiving,
With a clean heart,
And bring your tithes as a sign,
Of the great love, blessing and forgiveness,
That the Lord has shown you.

Oh holy mountain, see your King come,
Riding on the heavens,
Jerusalem, oh Jerusalem,
Once you rejected Him,
But now you will see Him,
Your King, your Saviour, your Messiah.

All Israel will bow the knee,
For when they see Him,
They will understand,
The Cornerstone they rejected is the foundation to all.

Great kings have arisen,
Prophets sang out His praises ,
And longed to see the day.
But, you I
Israel, you rejected Him.
His holy promise was to bless the nations through you,
So many nations have come to know Him,
But you Israel, you remained blind and deaf for a season.

Who can fathom the wisdom of God,
But His love endures forever,
He has used you Israel to reach the nations,
To bless and heal to prosper and love,
Yet, the time has come for you to open your eyes,
And unstop your ears.

Once again Jerusalem will arise,
As the holy hill,
Nations will stream to you.
You will gather your children,
From all corners of the earth,
And in one day you will see Him,
Riding on the clouds,
You will know your King and Saviour.

Praise the Lord all creation,
Praise His Holy Name,
Bow down before the King,
He will gather His children in His arms,
And lead them in His ways,
They will be known among the nations,
As lights unto the world.

His heart delights in His children,
And His arm stretches out to bless them.
His delight is with those whose walk is blameless,
Those who watch at His door daily,
To always walk in His ways,
He searches throughout the earth,
For a heart after His own.

All you shepherds of the flock,
Set your house in order,
For when He comes,
He will recompense all your works.
Look to your flock and give them sustenance.
Do not hide behind platitudes and sweet words,
And yet steal from His people,
Crying out “Bless, bless” while you harbour your greed,
And take from the needy.
You will be accountable on that day.

“Do not withhold what is good,
Walk in My ways and obey My voice,
Set your house in order,
And give to the needy, the orphan and the widow.
Do not gather riches for yourselves,
Serve Me and by serving Me serve My children.

Do not lord it over them,
Or hold yourselves above them.
For a true servant serves below.
Do not withhold My Holy Spirit,
But teach My children to pray.

For surely the days are coming when their faith will be tested,
All you shepherds of the flock,
Stop calling out “give, give and bless, bless,”
While you gather riches for yourselves,
And lord it over My people.

For surely a day is coming and not far off,
When I will recompense all your deeds.
Take heed of these words,
And prostrate yourselves before Me,
Repent and turn back to serve My children.”

Who may go up to the holy hill,
Who has clean hands and a pure heart,
Who would serve the Lord,
For those who seek after the Lord will find Him.

The decree has gone out,
“Do not be afraid, My children,
Look to Him who saves you,
Stand at the gate posts and blow the trumpet,
And warn my people.”

The day will turn to night,
Darkness, deep darkness will cover the earth,
The stars will fall from the sky,
Yet the Lords Word will stand.

Watch and see the Lords hand do it,
For is there anything impossible for Him,
He searches through all the earth,
For those who would serve Him.

Go up, go up, to the Holy Hill,
Blow the trumpet,
For have not the nations conspired,
Under shouts of  “Peace, peace,”
Yet the day will come,
When Jerusalem is surrounded.

Do not give rest to your voice,
You servants of the most High God,
Call out to the East,
Call out to the West,
Call out to the North and South,
Gather your children, Oh Israel,
And see a marvellous thing.

You will see your God coming,
Mighty is He,
He will strike fear into all your enemies,
And trample them on that day.

The lion will lie down with the lamb
The parched desert will have streams of living water,
Flowing through it,
The hyena and jackal will find rest,
The creatures of earth,
Both great and small will no longer hunt,
And blood will not be shed.

So great is the Lord,
All the earth will praise Him,
The heavens His throne and the earth His footstool,
All creation groans until the day of the Lord.

His word goes forth,
From one end of the earth to the other,
The riders on their horses are loosed,
Great and terrible is the day of the Lord,
He comes to judge,
To call all nations before Him,
Not one can hide.

Do you not know and have you not seen,
The works of His hand,
The stars in the heavens,
The sun and moon to mark the seasons,
And give light.
The rain to water the crops and land.

How is it that you say in your heart,
“There is no God,”
Yet the nations follow their idols,
Yet they curse what they do not know,
And stumble and fall but do not know why.

The Lord will gather them on that day,
And trample them as in a winepress,
Judgement will come to all those who follow after idols,
And say in their heart,
“There is no God.”

But the righteous shall be saved,
They will stream to His Holy Hill,
And bring offerings of thanksgiving and praise,
The highway for the righteous,
And streams of living water will flow there.

He will call you by name,
And set you in high places,
His love will cover you,
And He will gather you in His arms,
You will shine brighter than the stars in the heavens,
And all your ways will be blessed,
Praise and thanksgiving be to our God,
Forever and ever.

As the sun rises and sets,
From one end of the earth to another,
And as the seasons are set that bring springtime and harvest,
So, the season is set in its place.
The Lord Almighty has declared,
The season is ripe for the harvest.

They come from the East,
They come from the West,
They come from the North and from the South,
They pour forth into the holy land,
Sons and daughters returning,
For the word has gone out,
“Return to Me,” says the Lord.

“I will gather you as an eagle,
I will cover you with my pinions,
And once again make my name holy,
Amongst you.”

In an instant you will see,
The one rejected,
And understanding will enter your hearts,
And light will fill the dark places,
You will see Him,
As He comes riding on the heavens,
And on that day,
You will feel remorse for your rejection of Him.

But He will gather you in His arms,
As a Father his children,
He will comfort you,
While He goes through the nations with His winnowing fork,
And once again bring righteousness and justice.

Jerusalem shout out for joy,
Your king comes,
And His arm is with you.
He will trample the nations before you,
And judge them on that day.

Holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty,
Praise Him,
From the ends of the earth,
Let all creation praise Him.

1st February 2018

The name of the Lord is to be praised,
For who is like the Lord?
Who removes our transgressions from us,
Though we do not deserve His mercy and grace.
Yet He extends it over all those who seek Him.
Love and faithfulness are His,
A bruised reed He will not destroy.
Compassion and mercy are with Him to give.
Yet the righteous ones shine like stars in the heavens,
Yet a little while and you will enter into His rest.

Rise up, rise up, with thanksgiving and praise,
You who are called in the name of the Lord,
Let your light shine,
You anointed of the earth.
For those who see you will cover their mouths,
No word can harm you,
And no weapon come against you.
The earth will see and fear the mighty ones,
Who come in the name of the Lord.

For the Lord has covered them with strength and power,
To raise up and to lower,
To call forth the Lords hand,
Miracles follow them and power is with them,
To do as the Lord commands,
To speak only what the Lord will put in their mouths,
To the nations.

Look and behold,
And see the mighty hand of the Lord,
His outstretched arm,
To bring the nations before Him in judgment.
Let praise and thanksgiving be on your lips,
Clothe yourself in His strength.
See the Lords hand will do it.
Praise His holy name.

Who would do the will of the Lord?
Who can say in their hearts they follow in His footsteps?
Who waits at His door daily for the word of the Lord?
Who goes straight ahead and looks neither to the left nor the right?
Who would put aside their own desires,
And bow down before the Lord God Almighty?
Who would serve the Lord God Almighty?

For your walk will not be easy,
You vessel of the Lord,
Buffetted and battered, like a reed in a storm,
Yet humbly you call out to the Lord,
A light among the nations,
Yet I will draw you out,
Says the Lord God Almighty,
From the ends of the earth.

Before Me, you will walk,
And I will go before you and behind you,
Nothing shall harm you,
Although you are surrounded on all sides by darkness,
Deep darkness covers the earth.
So the Lord God Almighty will be with you.

I have anointed you and set you apart,
For such a time as this,
You will speak my words to the nations,
For I have given you the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven,
To speak to the nations,
To uproot and destroy,
You will have power over all the enemy,
And My word will go forth,
And it shall be done,
Says the Lord God Almighty.

Praise you Lord,
Let all creation praise you,
Let your will be done,
On earth as it is in Heaven.

Do you not know and have you not heard,
The Lord’s arm is with Him,
To raise up and to lower,
For a little while He will raise what is not holy,
For His good purpose.

He sees the hearts of men,
And knows their schemes,
He rides the heavens,
And looks down from His throne.

They would scheme to raise one above all others,
Peace, peace, they cry,
But wickedness and deceit are in their hearts.
To defraud the oppressed and needy,
To steal from the widow and orphan,
To take away justice,
And change the order of things,
Times and seasons.

The Lord laughs at their schemes,
From His holy place,
For a time, times and half a time,
Prosperity will come,
Then they will devour one another.

Do you not know and have you not heard,
Nothing is hidden from the Lord God Almighty,
He has saved a day,
A day of judgement for the man of sin,
A day of judgement for the nations.

When His arm extends to do it,
Then the righteous will rejoice,
Hold on, Hold on my children,
For the time is close and you will be avenged and see it.

All glory to our God,
Almighty and majestic is He,
Praise Him, Praise Him, all the earth,
For He comes to bring justice and righteousness,
He will do it.

The word has come,
“Come, come out of her my children,”
The great prostitute of the earth is to be judged,
Clothed in scarlet she has deceived,
And lead astray the many.
She has called from the great city,
“Come in here and I will have you worship me,”
Queen of heaven she calls herself.

The nations have fallen under her spell,
She is drunk with power and the blood of the saints,
She has set her heart to destroy the saints,
Those who follow and worship the Lord God Almighty.

Her deeds are wickedness and sin,
She is dressed in scarlet and has raised herself up,
The blood of the saints, millions upon millions,
Will be avenged,
The great city on a hill will be destroyed,
In an instant.

The earth will shake,
And the nations will look in horror,
But to those who are children of the Living God,
To those who worship Him and wait at His door,
Do not be afraid,
For the beginning of these things are but birth pangs.

Those who have gone before,
Destroyed by the great prostitute who calls herself holy,
They are under the throne of God,
Calling to Him, daily,
“When Lord will you avenge?”

She thinks she rides the heavens,
and rules over the nations,
And there is none to come against her.
But our God, The Lord God Almighty,
Will come and trample her in His winepress,
And she will be no more.

Praise and glory be to the Lord God Almighty,
Creator of the heavens and the earth,
the Alpha and Omega,
The Beginning and the End,
Forever and ever.
