Green Growth

I see new green growth in the wormwood
And resurgence of the flame
Lord we need more than revival
Resurrection is our aim.

For the bones of former glories
Have descended to the dust
Now our sepulchres are whitened
And our swords are red with rust.

To see new life from the cesspool
And new passion spark the fire
From the culture’s conflagration
Birth a holy new desire

See the glory of the Lord arise
Putting the old ways to shame
Bring the sacrifice to the altar
And see it consumed by your flame

Lord in this generation
Raise a remnant filled with power
Who will call upon the nation
To repent in this dark hour

For the smoke is on the water
And the workmen wear their wage
But our Lord is at the rudder
As we navigate this age.
