This is a song the Lord gave me in one sitting which is unusual. I had been praying for a few years for the Lord to give me a song about Israel, but I kept feeling Him say “I don’t trust you with the issue of my heart yet.” On this day, He finally let me into this issue He feels with Israel, His Firstborn, His beloved. Out of Him showing me what He felt, the chorus is a plea for Him to take us deeper in understanding the emotions God feels towards Israel in her past, present, and future state.

Firstborn is part of The Witness EP.

Children I have reared and raised them

But they have revolted and chose rebellion

An ox knows it’s owner and a donkey it’s masters den

But Israel does not know they do not understand


Is this not My chosen?

Is not all My emotion tied up in them?

All day long I stretch out My hand

But they does not see nor comprehend


Oh that my eyes were a fountain of tears

To weep day and night for the slain of Jerusalem

Oh that my head were a waterfall

To join you Lord in the pain of your wayward wife

Oh that I could discern and understand

What you feel when you see her play the harlot with another man

Your husbands fury is drawing near

Israel Your chosen, Israel Your beloved one!


A vineyard I have planted and nourished

To gather the fruits of justice and righteousness

But when I looked behold distress and bloodshed

She must be consumed I will remove her hedge


Behold it is I who wound you

It is also I who will heal you

When I crush I mend

I will redeem you Jerusalem

Behold it is I who wound you

It is also I who will heal you

When I crush I mend

I will redeem you Jerusalem


I will redeem you
