Israel Restoration

I was born and raised on a farm in Pennsylvania.

Who created and formed you,
Fear not for He has redeemed;
He called you to be pursue,
Iniquities to be cleaned.

When you pass through the waters,
And with you through the rivers;
Sheltering in His quarters,
Warming you when life shivers.

Through fire you will not burn,
And not consumed by the flame;
Hear the Lord listen and learn,
From your lips and tongue proclaim.

The Lord is the Holy One,
He is your God and Savior;
Remember what He has done,
Looking on you with favor.

You are precious to His eyes,
Being honored and cherished;
He gives wisdom to be wise,
Wants you not to be perished.

He gives for you in return,
For having eternal life;
Through your faith that you can earn,
While you cope with the strife.

Fear not for He is with you,
He will bring seed from the east;
From the west they will come too,
As they gather for the feast.

From the north and from the south,
They bring your sons and daughters;
Cheering with joy from the mouth,
To gather by the waters.

Everyone called by His name,
Made and formed for His glory;
You should not have any shame,
By telling of His story.
