Then they will know

I will speak, I will wait,
I will send prophets among them, that they might hear,
That they might see and understand how much I love them.
Then they will know that I am father.
Then they will know I am Lord.
They’ll walk with Me and be my people.
I’ll walk with them as their God. As their God
I will strike, I will scourge
And carry out vengeance upon them.
But I will heal the wounds I make
and tenderly take them back to me.
Then they will know that I am Savior
I am Redeemer and Friend.
Immanuel, the God that is with them,
The God who gives all He can
He is Salvation, He is the Kingdom
To Know Him is paradise
He will come, my own Son,
a Word Faithful hearts can’t help hearing
And by His death, with His last breath,
A father’s forgiveness comes flowing.
Then they will know that I am father.
Then they will know I am Lord.
They’ll walk with Me and be my people.
I’ll walk with them as their God. As their God
