Going Up to Zion

We’re going up,
We’re going up.
It’s been too long
Since we’ve seen Zion.
Our hearts were numb,
Our souls succumbed
To fleshly desires.
We were dead men walking;
We were only talking
To idols of stone.

We’re going up,
We’re going up.
It’s been too long
Since we’ve seen Zion.
Walking and weeping,
Our hearts are broken,
Our souls awakened
To the Truth.
Turning, we’re returning
To You.

We’re going up,
We’re going up.
It’s been too long
Since we’ve seen Zion.
Streams of peoples
From every tribe and tongue.
Your Word to hear,
Your teachings made clear.
And in that day You will be One,
And Your Name One.
