In this desolate place, hot, dry,
and without water,
the desert provides no nourishment
and offers no vitality.
Dead men walking with no life are useless.
Hear the clarion cry,
wake up, live!
Connect your bones to the body,
Connect your bones to the earth,
Connect yourself to all inhabitants!
Come together and reason together!
Live, dry bones live!
Breathe new life,
Receive new hope,
Receive the breath of life.
Shake off your malice!
Shake off your strife!
Receive the living water of life.
These dry bones can live,
even in a desert
or in the midst of desolation.
Open your cistern,
allow the balm of Gilead
to heal you.
