The Spirit of the Almighty Lord,
Is the Lord that anointed me;
And should not let it be ignored,
For the future that you can see.
Proclaim the Good News to the people,
For the brokenhearted to heal;
Set free captives with the Gospel,
Release them for giving them zeal.
Vindicate the year of the Lord,
And the day for vengeance by God;
Letting it never be ignored,
How much you are righteously flawed.
He has sent me to provide those,
Who are grieving here on this earth;
Showing them where the blessing flows,
And how much is their lawful worth.
Give them their crowns instead of ash,
Oil of joy instead of grief;
Guarding them from all the backlash,
So they are able to get relief.
Clothe them of praise not of weakness,
To be called Oaks of Righteousness;
Planted and rooted amongst bleakness,
Implanted into consciousness.
Ancient ruins they will rebuild,
Destroyed long ago be restored;
Cities renewed Spirit instilled,
Being directed by the Lord.
Foreigners are to come forward,
And become shepherds for your flock;
As a child be a steward,
Work the vineyards and fields you walk.
You are priests, servants of the Lord,
Consuming wealth of the nation;
While showing He is adored,
For giving joy and salvation.
You will receive double the wealth,
Instead of the insult and shame;
Increasing your spiritual health,
The more that you boast and proclaim.
