"Tread Light, Tread Slow" as written by and Caleb Culver Bob Powers....
I have took you out of Canaan the land of the covenant
A land full with compromise
But only for a time 'cause Canaan's sins run deep, and
I have put you in this place to make the nation great
I have increased your strength and now I'm calling you out

For now I hear a groan arise
And there's a covenant that survives
By the offering of faithful man who left his own for the assurance of a new land
Following blind belief, and assurance as big as the sands of the sea
And just as smoke and flame pass between him that day,
Smoke and flame will take the lead again

Tread light, tread slow, tread carefully, bear your feet,
For the place you stand is holy ground, hallowed ground
Your feet stand at the food of the mountain of God
Tread light, tread slow, tread carefully, bear your feet,
For this is bigger than just one call, one man
The chosen ones will become Your people again

Out of Egypt has come a fruitful vine (Four hundred years)
I will plant you on the mountain where I abide (Is a long time)
(And four hundred longer still)
I will plant you on the mountain where I abide
I will plant you on the mountain where I abide

I will show the strength and retribution of my right hand
I will single you out, a clear dividing line that will leave no doubt
And I will make your name a fearful thing throughout the land
They will remember Israel, they will remember her God

Gather the people, gather the elders, gather the children of your fathers
Gather together all your possessions
And you will plunder from their indiscretions
Blood, frogs, lice, flies and disease
And I will do many mighty things that they may tremble before your God
But still their hearts wont relent, boils, hail, locusts, darkness and death
And the power of the Almighty will break their resolve
Now when these trials come to an end you will stand before me here again
And you will say "Surely the Lord is a man of war"
