Restoration In Returning


Tune: Louvan

('Lord of all being, throned afar')

Hosea 14 v.1-7 parts


O Israel, return to the Lord

You have fallen by sins, true word

But say, Lord, forgive us this day

And restore us back to your way


So we will praise you and not turn

To foreign nation, but shall learn

Of you, and from idolatry

We turn, and find in you mercy


The Lord says, I will hear, and heal

Their backsliding, with them will deal

With love freely, for my anger

I turned from them, and shall not stir


I will be as dew to Israel

They shall grow as the lily well

Shall send forth roots as cedar trees

Of Lebanon, as they me please


They that dwell under His shadow

Shall return and revival know

Be as the corn, grow as the vine

Aroma as the fine fresh wine

      Forgiveness is so important. This piece could be easily mistaken for coming from the Bible. Well done
