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.

He raises himself up with pride in his heart,
“Who is like me,” he asks,
As he comes riding above the nations,
“Peace, peace,” he calls,
Yet the man of sin,
Is a stench in the Lords nostrils.

He gloats over his enemies,
And has no regard for women,
He walks through the nations and says,
“There is none like me.”

For a time, times and half a time,
So shall it be,
Peace and prosperity will come,
He will enter Jerusalem,
Bowing down in false pretence,
But deceit is in his heart.

Look all you nations,
For the time has come,
An abomination has set itself up,
On the holy hill.

But in a moment it shall be swept away,
For the Lord will come,
Riding the heavens,
A sceptre of judgement in His hand,
And He will trample him in an instant.

All you who trust in the Lord,
Hold fast your faith,
Do not believe the lies that spew forth,
Hold fast your faith,
Bow down and pray,
That it may not touch you.

And the Lord will hear your prayers,
The prayer of the righteous,
And He will deliver you on that day.
Praise the Lord,
Sing forth praises to His holy name,
For deliverance and judgement are in His hand,
On that day.

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 thanksgivingĀ be on your lips,
Clothe yourself in His strength.
See the Lords hand will do it.
Praise His holy name.
