God Has Set the Land Before Us

God Has Set the Land Before Us

God has set the land before us,
And the land we will possess.
God has finally found a people
Tired of the wilderness.
Down with every weight and sin;
Let’s go up and enter in.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Amen.

It’s a land of hills and valleys,
Brooks of water flowing free;
Fountains rich with living water,
Streams that flow abundantly.
Brothers, joyfully we stand
In His promise, Christ the land.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Amen.

God has made the fruit to grow here,
Filled the land with produce sweet:
Olive oil and pomegranates,
Fig trees, honey, vines and wheat.
We need nothing else besides,
All we need the land provides.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Amen.

Be like the bird who, pausing in her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing she hath wings.
