The Vision

Be still my soul and listen:
God is aroused and risen from His holy habitation.
Even now He is moving among us.
I hear Him say to me -
"Sing and rejoice, O my daughter, for lo I come.
I will dwell in the midst of you and you shall know that I am the Lord."

Be still my soul, and stand in awe.
God will give us a new heart and renew a right spirit within us.
We shall rebuild the ancient ruins.
We shall raise up the former desolations, the devastations of many generations.
Lift up your eyes now and see
and do not despise the day of small beginnings.

Behold the Lord is doing a new thing, now it springs forth.
Do you not perceive it?
He will make a way for us in this wilderness and pour His Spirit upon us.
Sons and daughters will prophesy and dream dreams and see visions.
He will give us treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places.
We shall know that it is the Lord who calls us by name.

Sing to the Lord a new song, O my soul.
He will gather us and bring us together as a flock in the midst of a pasture.
He will give us pure speech from pure lips,
that we may call on His name and serve Him
with one unanimous consent, and one united shoulder.
We shall be called priests of the Lord, and oaks of righteousness.
We shall be His people and He shall be our God.
