Returning from Exile

From Jeremiah 31:8:  “See, I am going to bring them from the land of the north, and gather them from the farthest parts of the earth, among them the blind and the lame, those with child and those in labor, together; a great company, they shall return here.”

Filling life with darkness

Wandering, defeated

Residing in exile

Forfeiting, depleted


Hearing distant trumpet

Sending invitations

Proclaiming Good News

Gathering each nation


Calling to faithfulness

Extending Holy hand

Leading us with promise

Witnessing God’s command


Sustaining light ahead

Proclaiming Father’s might

Returning from exile

Forsaking former plight


Accepting Lord’s mercy

Praising His love and grace

Walking in step with God

Tasting life’s Holy place

From Jeremiah 31:7:  “For thus says the LordSing aloud with gladness for Jacob, and raise shouts for the chief of the nations; proclaim, give praise, and say, ‘Save, O Lord, your people, the remnant of Israel.'”
