Rebuild The Ancient Ruins

words and music by Douglas C.

                                       Eltzroth

 

The Voice from Calvary’s mountain

still echoes through this town

Hear the Son of God repeating prophecies

He talks of miracles and wonders

the blind and lame through Him have found

Yet he speaks of those doing miracles

greater than these

 

They will rebuild the ancient ruins in My name

They will restore the broken city for My sake

They have known this devastation

For too many generations

Yet now rebuild the ancient ruins in My name

 

There are bricks and there is mortar

that have crumbled to the ground

It’s a sign that a mighty, mighty trouble

has caused this decay

There’s been injustice, there’s been oppression

There’s been some fear, there’s been some hate

But there’s a people livin’ out a miracle

 through their faith

 

As they will rebuild the ancient ruins in My name

As they will restore the broken city for My sake

They have known this devastation

For too many generations

They now rebuild the ancient ruins in My name

 

Through the cracks in the broken concrete

A blade of grass has grown

Let it remind you that God’s salvation

is close at hand

It comes from the Root and the Seed of Jesse that can sprout in the desert sand

 

Calling men of every color

Calling women of every shade

Calling people of the Kingdom

to rebuild this place…

 

Let us rebuild the ancient ruins in God’s name

Let us restore the broken city for God’s sake

We have known this devastation

For too many generations

Let us rebuild the ancient ruins in God’s name
