I attended a worship conference in early 2003 where Marty Nystrom mentioned that few of the modern P&W songs were being written from the point of view of God speaking to His children. So I decided to write one.
Rejoice Daughter of Zion I have redeemed you * Lift your head, the jubilee draws near * Return to My stronghold I will restore you * Dance and sing, for I will send My rain*
Hallelujah! * Shout hallelujah! * Wipe your tears away and praise my name! * Hallelujah! * Shout halle-lu-u -jah! * My mercy’s brand new each and every day.
All through the dry times I have been with you * Never have I let you walk alone * Return to me now and I will embrace you * I’ll clothe you in My robe of righteousness
