"This new plan I'm making with IsraelBy coming up with a new plan, a new covenant between God and His people, God put the old plan on the shelf. And there it stays, gathering dust."
isn't going to be written on paper,
isn't going to be chiseled in stone;
This time I'm writing out the plan in them,
carving it on the lining of their hearts.

They'll all get to know me firsthand,
the little and the big, the small and the great.
They'll get to know me by being kindly forgiven,
with the slate of their sins forever wiped clean.
