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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
