In Days to Come

In days to come the mountain of the Lord shall be established as the highest place.

From East and West all peoples will stream toward that holy hill where we shall see God’s face. 


Come, let us go ascend that chosen mount where Jacob’s God is by all people found.

There may we learn of heaven’s blessed ways that we may follow Jesus all our days. 


From Zion comes the teaching we must heed, out from Jerusalem the word we need.

Between the nations God alone decides. To paths of righteousness the Spirit guides. 


Swords into plowshares, spears to pruning hooks, learn no more warfare from our many books,

but in the light of Jacob’s God now walk and let the peace of heaven fill our talk.
