Come back to me with all your heart.
Don't let fear keep us apart.
Trees do bend, 'though straight and tall;
so must we ot others' call.
Long have I waited for your comingThe wilderness will lead you
home to me and living deeply our new life.
to your heart where I will speak.
Integrity and justice,
With tenderness, you shall know. (Refrain)
You shall sleep secure with peace;
faithfulness will be your joy. (Refrain)
Paraphrase of Hosea 6:1, 3:3, 2:16,21; Joel 2:12
