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,
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,
From the ends of the earth,
Let all creation praise Him.
