Approaching Millennium

Representative Text

1 Behold th' expected time draw near,
The shades disperse, the dawn appear!
Behold the wilderness assume
The beauteous tints of Eden's bloom,
The beauteous tints of Eden's bloom!

2 Events with prophecies conspire
To raise our faith, our zeal to fire;
The ripening fields, already white,
Present a harvest to the sight.
