I Have Come To These Islands

I HAVE COME TO THESE ISLANDS,
To undo heavy burdens,
Set the oppressed free,
Give bread to the hungry.
I have come to these islands
To loose chains of injustice,
Reach the rejected,
Cover the naked.

Yes, the light will break forth like the morning
And your healing will spring everywhere.
Then your righteousness will go before you.
And when you cry, I shall hear.

I have come to these islands
With no pointing finger,
But the hands of a builder,
A home-life restorer.
I have come to these islands
To rebuild ancient ruins,
Raise up the foundations,
For this generation.

Yes your light will shine out in the darkness
And the darkness become bright as day.
You will ride this earth's highest mountains
And all your work will be to My praise.
