God will take you from the nations,
Gather from every country;
Very far from their temptations,
And their immoral pleasantry.
He will bring you back to your land,
And sprinkle you with clean water;
Being guided by His command,
Protecting your son and daughter.
The Lord will be making you clean,
Cleansing you from all your idols;
Turning away what you had been,
Stopping the mind that just idles.
The Lord will give you a new heart,
And putting a new spirit in you;
Enabling you with a new start,
So you begin to remain true.
He will enable you to live,
As you start to obey His rules;
The Lord is willing to forgive,
The past when all of you were fools.
Then you will live within the land,
That He gave to your ancestors;
Fertile beauty rather than sand,
Far from all of the molesters.
You are the people of the Lord,
So remember He is your God;
Remain to be in one accord,
Demonstrating honor and laud.
He will rescue from wickedness,
Evil causing iniquity;
Which exposes your nakedness,
And blocking you from purity.
He will be making the grain grow,
No fear of famines anymore;
Everything that you will sow,
Finding a harvest that will score.
For your sake, be it known to you,
Be shamed and disgraced of your ways;
Unto the Lord always be true,
Blessings to each one who obeys.
