The Lord Your God Has Vowed

The Lord your God has vowed to prosper everything you do.

Your bodies, barns and fields will yield their riches unto you.

The same delight that rested on your ancestors and kin,

will rain on you and what you have from heaven once again.


When you obey the Lord your God, observing the commands,

the written words of things God said and all of the demands;

when you have turned with all your heart and ev’ry ounce of soul,

you’ll see God’s promises fulfilled and know that you are whole.


It’s not too hard or far away to keep what God commands. 

They’re not way up in heaven or beyond the ocean sands.

The words are in your mouth to say, and written on your heart.

The day is here; it’s very clear; the time has come to start.
