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.

Let your heart not be heavy,
Those who carry a burden,
But who trust in the Lord.
You think He does not see,
And yet He sees your deepest desires,
He knows you, as a Father knows his children.

He hears your prayers,
And although time is nothing to Him,
He created the seasons,
So there are seasons in your life.
For He leads you in pastures green,
Leave your burdens at His door,
And He will carry them.

But a little while and the seasons will change,
Train your heart and mind on Him,
Set your feet in a secure place,
Do not turn to the right or the left,
But daily listen at His door,
And He will lead you.
The shepherd of His people,
Like lambs, He will lead you,
And you will know His voice.

He will not abandon, not one,
For He will bring back those who have strayed,
He shelters and protects.
Mothers raise your voices for your children,
And do not lose heart,
He hears and will bring back,
The tender lambs,
To salvation.

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.

Hear the word of the Lord,
All you nations,
For has the Lord not seen,
And is anything hidden from Him?

Today you shake your hands in pledge,
But oppression and dishonest scales,
Are in your hands,
You gather for your own pleasure,
And give no thought for the widow and the orphan.

You kings of the earth,
You gather your play things,
And jostle for power,
You kill the innocent,
And oppress the poor,
But your hearts remain bare.

Do you not think and can you not see,
The Lord sees your hearts,
He has set a day aside,
A day of judgment,
For those kings of the earth.

You laugh and pat yourselves on the back,
You raise yourselves up,
And feel there is none to judge.
But, in an instant your day will come,
When you are not expecting it.

The Lord will avenge those innocent,
that you oppressed and killed.
His judgement is with Him,
And He will come as a warrior,
Treading through the winepress of His anger,
Blood up to the horses bridle,
He will recompense you.

You will not know the day,
Your sins have risen to heaven,
A stench in His nostrils,
He will recompense,
And gather you as a heap, for destruction.

I lift my voice in praise,
To my beautiful Lord and Saviour.
Who is like the Lord,
slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness and compassion?
King of Kings, I bow down before Him.
The earth is His and all it contains,
The earth is His footstool, the heavens His cloak.

O Jerusalem, O Jerusalem,
Holy and Sacred hill,
Israel, the Lord’s own children,
Lift your eyes and you will see,
The coming of your King.

Watchmen call from the Watchtower,
The nations are preparing for battle,
The hoards from the North,
And from the ends of the earth.

Do not be afraid children,
Call out to your Father,
For He will come,
Riding the heavens.

A great shaking before that day,
But in an instant you will see Him,
And in that day you will know Him,
The one you rejected,
Will be your Saviour.

Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord God Almighty,
Praise Him all you people,
Lift up your voice in praise and thanksgiving,
For there is none like the Lord God,
Our God,
Who is from everlasting to everlasting,
Who knows the beginning from the end,
Who is the Alpha and Omega,
Our God.

Peace, Let your heart be at peace,
To those who fear and love the Lord.
Do not pay regard to the clamour around you,
The chitter chatter of fools,
For they vent their anger,
And lash out with their tongues,
And do not give thought to their ways.

Keep your eyes on the Lord,
Your feet from stumbling,
Follow Him in all your ways,
And you will not be put to shame.
No weapon formed against you will prevail,
For the Lord covers you with His protection.

For the one who listens at His door,
There is healing in His wings,
Your children shall be healed,
From all their afflictions.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And He will do it.
See the Lord comes in a moment,
His Spirit upon those that fear the Lord,
Lift up your voice in thanksgiving and praise,
For He has already done it.

My basket and kneading trough,
Are full of good things,
For surely the Lord will bless me,
All the days of my life.

The sun rises and the sun sets,
And there are only so many hours in the day,
To do good in the land.
Look to your Saviour,
Look to your Redeemer.

For the hour is coming,
And is almost here,
When He gathers His children,
Under His cloak,
Where He sets them apart,
And covers them.

Pray, Pray, Oh my soul,
I bow down before the King,
O Lord be merciful,
Turn the children’s hearts to the Father,
Salvation is yours to give.

But you come as a King,
A fierce warrior,
You tread the winepress of your anger,
Over those who come against you,
Against your children.

Lord help us,
For we are but dust,
You know our weaknesses,
Forgive us Lord,
And bring your righteousness and peace,
to those who love you.
Help us Lord,
Strengthen us and covers us,
In the coming days.

I bow down and praise you O Lord,
Creator of the heavens and the earth.
You formed me in my mothers womb,
As clay in the potters hand,
I am fearfully and wonderfully made,
Created in your image,
You put the words in my mouth.

Open up you ancient doors,
That the King of Glory may come in,
Clothed in splendour as the sun,
A sceptre in His right hand,
And dressed for battle.

O Israel see your king,
For He treads the winepress of His anger,
Over the nations of the earth.
Hold fast, hold fast and know that He will come,
For one has set his heart on Jerusalem,
Most holy of places,
Lifting himself up,
He is an abomination and stench in the Lords nostrils.

Let the Holy Ones rise up,
And contend with the nations,
Those who come against the ancient city,
Ready your hearts O Israel,
Mothers hold your children close,
Run, but there is nowhere to run,
Flee to the hills but there is no time,
You will be overtaken.

Gather them in from the nations,
Even from the ends of the earth,
For they will see their Saviour,
Who redeems Israel forever.
