But for you who fear my name,
the sun of righteousness will rise
with healing in his wings.
And you shall go forth again,
skip about like calves
coming from their stalls at last.

You shall be my very own
on the day that I
cause you to be my special home.
I shall spare you as a man,
as compassion on his son
who does the best he can.

But for you who fear my name,
the sun of righteousness will rise
with healing in his wings.
And you shall go forth again,
skip about like calves
coming from their stalls at last.

You shall be my very own
on the day that I
cause you to be my special home.
I shall spare you as a man,
as compassion on his son
who does the best he can.

(instrumental)

But for you who fear my name,
the sun of righteousness will rise
with healing in his wings.
And you shall go forth again,
skip about like calves
coming from their stalls at last.

    General CommentDirect quotes from the Bible: Malachi 4:2 and 3:17.

    These passages are about the final judgement and how "those who fear His name" will be spared from the fires of hell ("spare you as a man has compassion on his son" i.e. like a father). The "sun/son of righteousness will rise with healing in his wings" is about Christ who heals them and saves them, and how excited they'll be ("skipping like calves coming out of their stalls") to join him in heaven. God is preparing them to be His own ("my very own") people. He created them, saved them, and now He will dwell with them ("my special home").
