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.

Praise the Lord all creation,
Praise His Holy Name,
Bow down before the King,
He will gather His children in His arms,
And lead them in His ways,
They will be known among the nations,
As lights unto the world.

His heart delights in His children,
And His arm stretches out to bless them.
His delight is with those whose walk is blameless,
Those who watch at His door daily,
To always walk in His ways,
He searches throughout the earth,
For a heart after His own.

All you shepherds of the flock,
Set your house in order,
For when He comes,
He will recompense all your works.
Look to your flock and give them sustenance.
Do not hide behind platitudes and sweet words,
And yet steal from His people,
Crying out “Bless, bless” while you harbour your greed,
And take from the needy.
You will be accountable on that day.

“Do not withhold what is good,
Walk in My ways and obey My voice,
Set your house in order,
And give to the needy, the orphan and the widow.
Do not gather riches for yourselves,
Serve Me and by serving Me serve My children.

Do not lord it over them,
Or hold yourselves above them.
For a true servant serves below.
Do not withhold My Holy Spirit,
But teach My children to pray.

For surely the days are coming when their faith will be tested,
All you shepherds of the flock,
Stop calling out “give, give and bless, bless,”
While you gather riches for yourselves,
And lord it over My people.

For surely a day is coming and not far off,
When I will recompense all your deeds.
Take heed of these words,
And prostrate yourselves before Me,
Repent and turn back to serve My children.”

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.

In the coming days many will be tested.
Where is faith?
Can the Lord find it?

For the shepherds build their own kingdoms.
They draw the lost in with the salvation message,
But then mix it with prosperity teachings.

Woe to you shepherds of the church that do this.
You become fat and sleek,
You stand aside from your flock and do not know them by name.
Your flock is like the seed scattered on dry ground,
It takes root, but from lack of water it dies and withers.

Where is faith?
In your hearts you have strayed and you are blind guides.
You do not teach repentance, humility and love.
You serve yourselves and count the flock as it grows,
Claiming you are responsible for their salvation.

So, the Lord will hold you responsible,
In the coming days,
When many will fall away
and you do not go after them to gather them back.

There is a church lead by Jezebel,
The blind are there.
Priests dress in rich garments,
And blaspheme the Lords name daily.
What does the Lord require?
A pure heart, humility and a servants heart.
But the shepherds follow after their own desires.

Whoever would seek after the Lord,
Lay down your own desires.
The Lord requires obedience and faith.
Where will the Lord find faith in the coming days?

You blind guides,
You lead the Lords children astray.
Repent, repent and turn back to the Lord.
Do not let your hearts become hardened.

The Lord knows his sheep,
And they follow Him,
He knows them by name,
Pure hearts, humble and love are their ways.

He is calling them by name.
Hold fast to your faith.
For He is with you in the coming days.
