And these are the days of Your servant Moses- righteousness being restored; And tho’ these are days of great trials of famine and darkness and sword. Still we are the voice in the desert crying, “Prepare ye the way of the Lord.” (Chorus)
Chorus Behold He comes riding on the clouds, Shining like the sun at the trumpet call, So lift your voice, it’s the year of Jubilee And out of Zion’s Hill salvation comes Vs 2 These are the days of Ezekiel, The dry bones becoming as flesh, And these are the days of Your servant David, rebuilding a temple of praise. And these are the days of the harvest, The fields are as white in the world. And we are the laborers in Your vineyard Declaring the word of the Lord. (chorus) *Awesome God Our God is an awesome God; He reigns from heaven above With wisdom, pow’r and love. Our God is an awesome God; He reigns from heaven above With wisdom, pow’r and love. Our God is an awesome God! Our God is an awesome God! Our God is an awesome God! Our God is an awesome God!
Above all wealth and treasures of the earth, There’s no way to measure what You’re worth. Crucified, laid behind the stone; You lived to die, rejected and alone; Like a rose trampled on the ground, You took the fall, and tho’t of me above all.
