People Need the Lord

People need the knowledge of salvation
Through the forgiveness of their sins
By the tender mercy  of our God
Who longs to welcome them in 
And guide them away 
From death and darkness 
Into the path of peace 
Where His life and light will bless 
So the rescued and redeemed 
Of the Most High God
Can serve Him with holiness,
Righteousness and reverent awe

Zion's Future Glory

Sing, barren woman;   Give birth to jubilation   For through your offspring's seed   Will come the longed-for consolation...
