In Returning

“In returning and rest you shall be saved; 

In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.”
Isaiah 30:15
        
      

In returning to Me,
and waiting for Me,
shall you be saved.
In quietness and confidence 
is your strength.
But we would trust ourselves
and stand in our own strength 
and we shall be ashamed
upon that day.
But the Lord still waits for you
to show you His love
as He has said.
And He, He will conquer you
so that He may bless you
with Himself.
Blessed are they 
who wait upon the Lord
for they shall weep no more,
neither be afraid.
O my people in Jerusalem,
weep no more,
for the Lord
shall be gracious unto you,
and show you His love,
as He has said.
And though He give to you the bread
and water of adversity,
with your own eyes
you shall see your King,
and you shall say,
you shall say:
Blessed is He!  Blessed is He!
Blessed is He who comes 
in the Name of the Lord!
Tear down your images
and the idols that you have made,
for the Lord has prepared a fire
to cover the earth.
And the glory of the Lord
shall descend upon His hill
upon that day.
And the law of the Lord
shall go our from Zion
in His name.
And all the nations of the earth
shall bow before the One
they have pierced.
And the poor of the earth
shall rejoice:
Messiah has come!
Jesus!  Emmanuel!
Blessed is He who comes
in the name of the Lord.  
Lion of Judah,
Blessed is He who comes
in the name of the Lord.
Tear down your images
and the idols that you have made,
for the Lord has prepared a fire
to cover the earth.
