Behold, the mountain of the Lord

Behold, the mountain of the Lord
in latter days shall rise
on mountain tops above the hills,
and draw the wondering eyes.

2. To this, the joyful nations round,
all tribes and tongues, shall flow;
‘Up to the hill of God,’ they’ll say,
‘and to his house we’ll go.’

3. The beam that shines from Zion’s hill
shall lighten every land;
the King who reigns in Salem’s towers
shall all the world command.

4. Among the nations he shall judge;
his word shall be their guide;
his sceptre shall protect the just
and quell the sinner’s pride.

5. No strife shall rage, nor hostile feuds
disturb those peaceful years;
to ploughshares men shall beat their swords,
to pruning-hooks their spears.

6. Come then, O come, from every land
to worship at his shrine,
and, walking in the light of God,
with holy beauties shine.
