|Gather together all of you,
Listen to what I have to say;
Because what I must speak is true,
So you no longer go astray.
What idol has revealed such things?
As God loving a Persian prince;
While the plan of the Lord brings,
Loss of the Babylon defense.
He will use all of His might,
Against the Babylonians;
While waiting till it is night,
And become the new champions.
I alone have spoken to God,
Who will help make us succeed;
As long as we honor and laud,
He will be giving what we need.
So come here and listen to this,
In every desert we face;
There shall be an ocean of bliss,
God has an oasis of grace.
I have spoken right from the start,
From the time it has taken place;
Nothing private but from the heart,
Nothing that ever brings disgrace.
The Lord will teach you what is best,
And lead you to where you should go;
Ensuring that you pass the test,
And tell you what you need to know.
If you listened to His commands,
Your peace would flow like a river;
Never running dry like the sands,
Or cold nights that make you shiver.
Your righteousness like waves on a sea,
Your children would be like the sand;
For an oasis brings His decree,
A safe haven where you will stand.
