The temple of the Lord

I will write a song about the temple of the Lord

The temple in which the Lord dwells

He guides it securely forever

Like the fortified walls of Jerusalem

God himself is his temple’s towers

And he daily reveals himself as its defender

 

I will sing about the city of the Lord

Let the oceans roar and foam

Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge

A river brings joy to the city of our God

The sacred home of the Most High

God dwells in that city; it cannot be destroyed

From the very break of day, God will protect it.

 

I will sing about the fruitful vineyard of the Lord.

The Lord himself will watch over it, watering it carefully

Day and night He will watch so no one can harm it

His anger against it is all gone

If He finds briers and thorns growing, He will attack them

He will burn them up unless they turn to him for help

The time is coming when Jacob’s descendants will take root

Israel will bud and blossom and fill the whole earth with fruit!

 

I will sing about the tree of the Lord

The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon

They are the shoot He has planted

The work of his hands, for the display of his splendor

Those that be planted in the house of the LORD

Shall flourish in the courts of our God

They will still yield fruit in old age

They shall be full of sap and very green.

 

I am the Temple of the Lord

I am the City of the Lord

I am the Fruitful Vineyard of the Lord

I am Lebanon, the tree planted by the Lord

Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall become a fruitful field,

and the fruitful field shall be esteemed a forest?
