1 In latter days JEHOVAH's mount,
His sacred house shall rise
Above the mountains and the hills,
and strike the wond'ring eyes.
To this the joyful nations round,
all tribes and tongues shall flow:
3 'Up to JEHOVAH's mount, they'll say
'to Jacob's God we'll go.
'To us He'll point his ways of truth:
'his sacred path's we'll tread:
'From Salem and from Zion shall
'Jehovah's law proceed.'
4 Among the nations and the isles
as Judge supreme He'll sit;
And vested with unbounded pow'r,
will punish or acquit.
No strife shall rage, no angry feuds
disturb those peaceful years:
To plowshares then they'll beat their swords,
to pruning hooks their spears.
No nation against nation rise,
and slaughter'd hosts deplore:
They'll lay the martial trumpet by,
and study war no more.
5 O come ye then, of Jacob's house,
our hearts now let us join;
And walking in JEHOVAH'S light,
with holy beauties shine.
