In latter days shall rise
On mountain tops above the hills,
And draw the wondering eyes.

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

Among the nations He shall judge;
His judgments truth shall guide;
His scepter shall protect the just,
And quell the sinner's pride.

No strife nor rage, nor hostile feuds
Disturb the peaceful years;
To plowshares soon they beat their swords
To pruning hooks their spears.

Come then, O house of Jacob, come
And lift up Jesus Christ
And, walking in the light of God,
Throughout the nations shine.

Michael Bruce (1746-1767) Adpt. by John Logan 1781
