Ezekiel 36

Canticle - The Lord will renew his people
"They shall be his people, and he will be their God; his name is God-with-them" (Apoc 21, 3)

I will take you from the nations,
  and gather you from all the countries,
  and bring you into your own land.

I will sprinkle clean water upon you,
  and you shall be clean from all your uncleannesses,
  and from all your idols I will cleanse you.

A new heart I will give you,
  and a new spirit I will put within you;
and I will take out of your flesh the heart of stone
  and give you a heart of flesh.

And I will put my spirit within you,
  and cause you to walk in my statutes
  and be careful to observe my ordinances.

You shall dwell in the land
  which I gave to your fathers;
and you shall be my people,
  and I will be your God.
