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.

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.

Is the Sabbath day not Holy?
In six days God created the heavens and the earth,
On the seventh He rested.
The Lord says to His children,
The seventh day is Holy unto Me.
On this day you are to Rest in Me,
If you make the Sabbath day Holy unto Me,
You will seek after Me,
You will do no work on this day,
And My blessings will be upon you.

Seek after Me with all your hearts,
And you will find Me.
Learn my ways and follow in my footsteps,
And you will know the right way,
Righteousness and faith go hand in hand.

Do you not know that faith pleases Me,
Trust in Me with all your hearts,
And be not anxious,
For those that seek after Me and trust Me,
Will never be uprooted.

I will crown you with eternal life,
And you will be in My presence forever.
Do goods in the land and let your light shine.
Trust in Me and have faith,
For I am doing a new thing,
And your faith is counted as righteousness.

Your lamp will not go out in darkness,
But as with the stars of the night sky,
You will light up dark places,
And My Word will go forth to the nations.

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.
