Ho, everyone who thirsts come to the waters
and he who has no money come, buy and eat
Come, buy wine and milk without money, without price
Come to the waters come, buy and eat.
Why do you spend your money
for that which is not bread?
Why do you give your labor

for those with wicked thots'
to return unto him, Come, He will forgive.

They're higher than the heavens above you
but call, while I am near.
For as the rain and snow come down from heaven
and do not return, but water the earth
Making it bring forth & sprout where it lands
giving seed the sower and bread the hungry.
So shall the word gone forth from my mouth
it shall not return to me empty
but everything that is within my will
shall be accomplished in you.
For you shall go out in joy
and be led forth in peace
the mountains and the hills
before you shall break into singing
and all the trees of the field shall clap their
Instead of the thorn in the wilderness
there will be pine trees
to give you shade.
Instead of the briars there shall be
the sweet smell of the myrtle bush
with its sweet fruit.
And all this shall be to the Lord a sign,
