Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty,
Majestic in all His ways,
Nations will bow down,
All creation sings the praises of the King.

Coming in glory,
And riding the heavens,
O Israel, you will see Him,
Your Saviour and King.

His arm is with Him to do it,
Covering you, O Israel,
His voice has gone out,
To call His children to Him.

From all corners of the earth they come,
They stream from all the nations,
Lost, that they may be found.
Rejoice O Israel,
Your time has come to see your King.

Open up your homes and welcome them in,
For they come as aliens,
To their Holy land.
A gathering so great,
Who has seen such a thing.

The desert highways become streams of living water,
Once you were lost,
But as a Father to His children,
The Lord will make a way.

He will gather you in His arms,
And cover you with His pinions,
He has cried over you for a season,
He has seen your pain and struggle, O Israel.
And now is the time,
In a moment you will see Him.

The nations are in an uproar,
And are gathered against you,
But do not fear, O Israel,
His covenant is with you,
His love never ending.

They will gather on that day,
But the Lord God will fight for you,
A Father to His children,
He will trample those who come against you,
He will cut down the nations that surround you O Israel.

Do not be afraid,
Your God comes riding on the clouds,
When you have given up hope,
Then He will appear.

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.

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.

Rest in the Lord, all you His children,
Be not anxious or afraid,
For the things of this world are nothing,
They are here today but gone tomorrow.

You who are burdened,
You who are oppressed,
You who are sick,
You who cry daily at His door,
You who struggle and have no money,
Hold fast your faith and trust in Him.

For He is faithful,
He hears your prayers and gathers your tears.
A time is coming and is near,
When you no longer cry or struggle.

Know this, that the Lord is doing a new thing,
He has marked His children,
And they will know His rest.
Enter into His rest,
Be not anxious or afraid.

He will gather you to Himself,
And you will know His presence,
You will know His love, as high as the heavens from the earth,
Forgiveness, He has removed your transgressions,
As far as the East is from the West.

Salvation and blessing are from the Lord God Almighty,
Nothing you do will make Him love you any more than He does already.
Caste your burdens on Him,
And think of them no more.
For He will wrap you with his cloak of love,
He will be your Father,
He is your protection and provision,
He is your healer and will wipe away all your tears.
Rest in Him, all His children.
