Turn and Live

Turn and Live

(Ezekiel 18: 19-32)

The sinner shall surely die

Righteousness upon you

Wickedness upon you

Turn! Turn!

Turn from the lies!

Keep God’s commands

And learn


Evil remembered no more


No keeping of the score

Turned, turned, and turned

Live to the pleasure of God

Discern . . .

Righteousness remembered

Unfaithfulness and sin . . .

Burns like embers

Turn! Turn!

Repent and turn!

From all our sin

And the fire that burns

Ezekiel 18: 30-32

“Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways,” says the Lord GOD. “Repent, and turn from all your transgressions, so that iniquity will not be your ruin. Cast away from you all the transgressions which you have committed, and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies,” says the Lord GOD. “Therefore turn and live!”
