Who is like the Lord,
Full of mercy and lovingkindness,
Slow to anger and merciful in all His ways,
Who looks down from heaven above,
And sees all mens hearts.

Seek Him while He may be found,
Ask Him to show you mercy,
Do not give rest to your supplications,
But bow the knee at His door.

For surely He will not crush the broken hearted,
And He will have mercy on the oppressed,
Their tears He collects,
And suffers our burdens to carry,
So it is that He will wipe away every tear.

Lean on the Lord while He may be found,
Cast your cares and worries on Him,
For He knows we are but fragile,
And He will carry them for us.

Do not worry yourself about tomorrow,
But listen at His door for today,
And you too will hear the small gentle whisper,
“Come my child, rest in Me.”

Do not fear the works of evil men,
Who go through the earth scheming,
Not happy until they have made others stumble,
And taken justice from the land.

For truly their deeds are not hidden,
The Lord has kept a day for judgement,
Do not take revenge or hate in your heart,
For then you are no better.
But let the Lord take up your case,
And bring judgement on that day.

Sing your praises to the Lord,
And give your lips no rest,
For surely the Lord has given you salvation,
And a hope for the future,
And His love is with you forever.

Do not mind what the evil do,
But walk in His love and grace,
You stretch your hand out to the needy,
And help the oppressed.
Then, when He sees your righteous acts,
You shall have rewards for eternity.

But know this,
His love is unconditional.
Who can fathom the love of God for His children,
He takes great delight in us,
And sings over us,
As a Father over His children.

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.

Praise the Lord and His Holy Name,
Forever and ever, Creator of heaven and earth.
Is there anything to mighty for Him?
The heavens are His throne,
The earth His footstool.

He speaks and all creation listens.
Mountains bow down before Him,
The earth shakes and
the seas are gathered under His cloak.

To His people,
Those who love Him and obey Him,
Prepare your hearts,
For the Lord is doing a new thing.

Hold fast, hold fast, in the days ahead.
For your faith will be tested.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
For though the earth be covered in darkness,
Yet He will set aside His faithful ones.

Though evil may fill the earth,
Stand strong in your faith.
For His reward is for those that are faithful.
Even the elect are deceived,
priest and prophet alike.

But hold fast to your faith,
For in a moment,
You who are His, will see Him.
And when He comes,
He will gather you to Himself,
And you will know your faith has not been in vain.

For you will know,
The perfect love of the Lord God Almighty,
And forever be in His presence.

Open up you ancient doors,
That the King of Glory may come in,
Clothed in splendour and majesty,
There is none like Him.

Worship all you nations,
Bow down before Him.
For He makes a way,
A straight path for the righteous to follow.

Evil, sickness and poverty will not be there,
Indeed, all evil doers will be swept away.
The land will be purged,
And their judgement will come.

Those that find the Way,
Will be blessed with salvation.
Salvation, not of human making,
But salvation that is wondrous,
Of God’s hand.

Blessings will cover them,
No more sickness,
No more oppression,
No more weeping,
No more poverty.

For the Lord Our God reigns.
Righteousness and justice will be established,
And everyone from the least to the greatest,
Will know the Lord their Saviour.
