An Oath He Means to Keep

by c-mama

I’ve posted watchmen on your walls, Oh Jerusalem
Day and night they keep at it, praying, calling out
Reminding God to remember
They are to give Him no peace
Until He does what He said
Until He makes Jerusalem famous
As the city of praise

God has taken a solemn oath
An oath He means to keep
Never again will I open your grainfield barns
To your enemies to loot and eat
Never again will foreigners drink the wine
That you work so hard to produce

Know the farmers who grow the food
Will eat the food and praise God for it
And those who make the wine
Will drink the wine in my holy courtyards

Walk out of the gates!
Get going!
Get the road ready for the people
Build the highway
Get at it
Clear the debris
Hoist high a flag
A signal to all the people

Yes, God has broadcast to all the world
Tell your daughter Zion, Look, your Savior comes!
Ready to do what He said He would do
Prepare to complete what He promised

This comes from Jonathan Helser’s album, “The Reward”. AWESOME music.
