Desolate – Restored – Finale


Cry out to God for mercy on our land –
Beautiful land – locusts come – nothing’s left.
There goes out a call – return to God’s band.
Repent – turn to God lest we be bereft.

Time, as we know it, cannot be restored.
Fruitless, painful, selfish, rebellious years –
All those are things that we cannot afford.
Communion with God can allay our fears.

To the last day the Spirit will be poured,
But God cannot fill what He does not own.
Are we trusting Him, or is God ignored?
Let go – trust God – stop trying all alone.

There will be a judgment – God has a plan.
God keeps books. “And there I will sit to judge.”
I believe – what God says He’ll show to man.
Christ, only, is my refuge. God won’t budge! 

Referring to the 1st chapter of Joel.
