The Rigtheous Restore
There is a generation that no longer knows Your name Your servant has been forgotten and they seek their own riches and fame Turning from Your covenant signed in unfailing love We choose graven idols and do evil in Your sight from above We do not know our state, a righteous one must come to restore To show this lost generation our idols will fail us and You are much more For You are the righteous God that created us all to bear Your appearance Instead of using our lives for worship we have given the enemy clearance We will be overcome by the snare laid out by their gods We will fall to slavery and be subject to our enemy’s rods You know this and have given us a way that will overcome But even with warning, we run to the evil and live in their ways as we are rendered spiritually blind and dumb No longer able to see Your face, no longer able to hear Your speech We need the righteous to restore us and lead us out of the enemy’s reach We are in no need of a ruler as we do what is right in our own eyes What we need is a righteous judge to adjust our way to Your way and dismiss the many lies To overcome our enemy and lead us to victory and lasting peace We cannot live in this circumstance anymore as our troubles only increase We praise You Lord for the righteous judge; he has restored us to walk in Your way We have a peace and a rest; it is here we will surely stay But there is a generation that no longer knows Your holy name Your righteous servant has been forgotten and they seek their own riches and fame Reverting back to what is right in our own eyes Ignorant that our ways are once again leading to destruction and our demise We fall so easily to our lust and our greed; we serve the king of Moab and worship his idol mammon Rich and famous we will become, but in this life there will be poverty and famine As we are quenching Your spirit and drained of all its conviction and care “they shall be as thorns in your sides, and their gods shall be unto you a snare” Your word is truth why do we error and forsake Your path Lord spare us from this enemy, send the righteous to restore us out from Your wrath You have placed us among our enemy as we have forgotten our way to war We lie subject to others and their opinions, but only Your truth can restore Touching what is unclean the corruption has followed We have chosen a way against Thee and the deceit of it is what we have swallowed Destroying us from within, we cannot find a way to avoid its fee The righteous restore us, lead us back to You and set us free I will deliver you in covenant love, my mercy I will pour out I will raise up a valiant warrior that will defeat your enemy with a small company and a shout You will leave me again, I will allow you to stray For no matter how many times you seek a path you will find I am the only way I will not deliver you for a time, as there is a price for your choice You will live in consequence, but I will be by your side when you choose to hear my voice You will find better circumstance is not your savior, salvation is who I am A righteous judge may restore peace, but there is no peace apart from the Lamb For Lamb is set on the altar to restore the depths within your heart It is here that the war is won and here that the enemy can be stopped before it starts Build unto me an altar, I will provide the sacrificial Lamb It is my heart’s desire for you to live free from sin’s grasp and grow to know who I am I created you to be a holy nation, a wife, a bride to be present at my throne To reign with me forever and eternally be glorified as you are known By the most High God, The king of kings and Lord of Lords Eternally secure in Identity of Christ, singing in endless song playing endless chords This is my plan for you, you are glorious in my sight Turn no more to the lies before you and seek me in the night There is no judge like me, for none can eternally settle the case There is none righteous and none have the power over sin to erase There are none upon a cross apart from my son Who in death found victory and in death souls were won The Righteous restore, but among the righteous there is only one Who can take a wretch like me and call me a holy priest and a son The Righteous restore as I will only run away But the Lord draws me close into a relationship that nothing can sway The Righteous restore even when I ally with deception What love is this that sees no sin and holds for me an open reception? The Righteous restore may the imperfect judges remind me everyday That my circumstance is not my problem it is my heart and my soul’s way The Righteous restore even when there is no king within my life Doing what is right in my own eyes; The Lord will lend His sight and save me from my strife The Righteous restore there is no other way, no higher decree The Righteous God above will exalt those washed by the living water pouring out from the Cross at Calvary
