Scriptures
"At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgments." - Ps. 119:62
 
"Who is this that cometh up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved? I raised thee up under the apple tree: there thy mother brought thee forth: there she brought thee forth that bare thee. Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned." - Song. 8:5-8
 
"When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man is vanity. Selah." (Psalm 39:11)

"And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying, O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the Lord. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel." - Jer. 18:4-6
 
"Therefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfortably unto her. And I will give her her vineyards from thence, and the valley of Achor for a door of hope: and she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, and as in the day when she came up out of the land of Egypt." - Hos. 2:14-15
 
"Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the Lord." - Ps. 107:43

This song has no description
1. Thou burn-est upon man  
Thou turnest upon Him Thy Hand  
And with rebukes, You make to consume His beauty  
Oh this way of transgressors was hard!  
Left me wounded and wearied and marred  
But Your Ru-hama re-made, this rebel You paid for on Calvary.
  
2. Now coming forth as gold  
Yes, I can clearly behold  
To You my darkness was day  
And You had Your way in the whirlwind  
Though I wanted it to come  
And I asked it of God from above,  
But I didn’t expect  
To be made perfect in the valley
 
Refrain
At Mid-night I will arise, and give thanks unto Thee;
Because of Thy righteous judgments,
Which have pre-vailed up-on me  
 
3. Ah, now, the wilder-ness!
Yes, It all makes perfect sense!
Taking this worm
This way to con-form to Your image  
The clear shining after the rain  
Oh Your beauty after the pain  
Let my eyes see  
That my greatest need is Your glory  
 
4. I tried to see You but wouldn’t die  
Now from the ashes I do arise  
And on Your wings  
I can sing of Your healing  
The light now shines on Your face  
And now I can fully embrace  
Your judgments for,  
You’ve made me more than a conqueror  
 
Refrain
 
5. Oh it never was just for me,
But for Your judgments and praise to be declared and seen
Spiritually fulfilled, as You’ve literally willed soon to be:
You had nothing of which You ought
For Your people was taken away for naught
Howling each day and causing Your name to be blasphemed
 
6. From understanding I fell
And de-based myself lower than hell
But You asserted Your right
And thus made me white through sore trial
But now is the time of the end
And for the help of Thy people I'll spend and be spent
With Your dead body rise
I shall sing the demise of Great Babylon
 
Refrain
 
7. So for jealousy over this whore  
How you stirred Yourself up for the war  
First through, then upon  
The Great Babylon for Your purpose  
In fury You all things consumed
To take away former things revealing the new  
The trip treacherous  
‘Twas saving the best - what an ending!
 
Refrain
 
Who is this that cometh up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved?
 
Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.
 
Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned. (Song. 8:5a-7)
