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.

The lion will lie down with the lamb
The parched desert will have streams of living water,
Flowing through it,
The hyena and jackal will find rest,
The creatures of earth,
Both great and small will no longer hunt,
And blood will not be shed.

So great is the Lord,
All the earth will praise Him,
The heavens His throne and the earth His footstool,
All creation groans until the day of the Lord.

His word goes forth,
From one end of the earth to the other,
The riders on their horses are loosed,
Great and terrible is the day of the Lord,
He comes to judge,
To call all nations before Him,
Not one can hide.

Do you not know and have you not seen,
The works of His hand,
The stars in the heavens,
The sun and moon to mark the seasons,
And give light.
The rain to water the crops and land.

How is it that you say in your heart,
“There is no God,”
Yet the nations follow their idols,
Yet they curse what they do not know,
And stumble and fall but do not know why.

The Lord will gather them on that day,
And trample them as in a winepress,
Judgement will come to all those who follow after idols,
And say in their heart,
“There is no God.”

But the righteous shall be saved,
They will stream to His Holy Hill,
And bring offerings of thanksgiving and praise,
The highway for the righteous,
And streams of living water will flow there.

He will call you by name,
And set you in high places,
His love will cover you,
And He will gather you in His arms,
You will shine brighter than the stars in the heavens,
And all your ways will be blessed,
Praise and thanksgiving be to our God,
Forever and ever.

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.

Do you not know and have you not heard,
The Lord’s arm is with Him,
To raise up and to lower,
For a little while He will raise what is not holy,
For His good purpose.

He sees the hearts of men,
And knows their schemes,
He rides the heavens,
And looks down from His throne.

They would scheme to raise one above all others,
Peace, peace, they cry,
But wickedness and deceit are in their hearts.
To defraud the oppressed and needy,
To steal from the widow and orphan,
To take away justice,
And change the order of things,
Times and seasons.

The Lord laughs at their schemes,
From His holy place,
For a time, times and half a time,
Prosperity will come,
Then they will devour one another.

Do you not know and have you not heard,
Nothing is hidden from the Lord God Almighty,
He has saved a day,
A day of judgement for the man of sin,
A day of judgement for the nations.

When His arm extends to do it,
Then the righteous will rejoice,
Hold on, Hold on my children,
For the time is close and you will be avenged and see it.

All glory to our God,
Almighty and majestic is He,
Praise Him, Praise Him, all the earth,
For He comes to bring justice and righteousness,
He will do it.

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.

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.
