1 Behold, array'd in Light
And by Divine Command,
Fair Peace, the Child of Heav'n, descends
To this afflicted Land!
Like the bright Morning Star
She leads a glorious Day,
And o'er this western World extends
Her all reviving Ray.
2 Your Swords to Plough shares turn'd,
Your Fields and Plenty crown'd,
Shall laugh and sing – and Freedom spread
The Voie of Gladness round
Oh, Sing a new made song!
To God your Hymns address,
He rul'd the hearts of mighty Kings,
And gave our Arms Success.
3 He check'd our haughty Foe
And bad the Contest cease, –
"Thus, and no farther, shalt thou go
Be all the World at Peace,
No more shall savage War
Lead on the hostile Band;
No more shall suff'ring Captives mourn
Or Blood pollute the Land."
4 Confess Jehovah's Pow'r
And magnify his Name,
Let all the World with one Accord,
His wondrous work proclaim,
Let us with Hearts devout
Declare what we have seen,
And ot our Children's Children tell
How good the Lord hath been.
