Seek the Lord that He may be found,
Call on Him while He is near;
Listen carefully for the sound,
And say your prayer for Him to hear.
Let the wicked desert their ways,
As evil people forsake their thought;
On what makes you to go astray,
With immorality as sought.
Help them return onto the Lord,
By showing compassion to them;
And that they can be one accord,
So that God shall never condemn.
Help them confess their heart and soul,
Because God will freely forgive;
With righteousness being the goal,
For peace and harmony to live.
His thoughts are not always the same,
His ways are not always likewise;
For you never have the same aim,
Not seeing as He with His eyes.
For Heaven is higher than earth,
So would His ways then be higher;
Since the value has much more worth,
That is present now or prior.
Rain and snow come down from the sky,
As they flow for quenching the earth;
And the dew will form as to cry,
Giving all the crops a new birth.
Moisture will make them sprout and grow,
For farmers to have a great yield;
Producing much to eat and show,
His thorough efforts in the field.
My words which comes out from the tongue,
Much like the efforts of the rain;
No results can come what is flung,
If my words will want to complain.
It will accomplish what I need,
Achieve what I want it to do;
You will go out with joyful seed,
Reaping a harvest that is true.
The mountains and the hills will sing,
Breaking into the songs of joy;
All the trees will clap and will bring,
Fresh fruit to reap as you employ.
