1. The mountain of Jehovah's house
Shall, in the latter days,
Above the tops of mounts, and hills,
It's head, in glory, raise:
To it, as rivers to the sea,
Shall all the nations flow.
3. Thither they flock, and cry, come ye
Let's to the Lord's mount go.
There, in the house of Jacob's God,.
He'll teach us his pure ways;
And in his sacred paths we'll walk,
All our remaining days:
For out of Zion shall go forth
A law, that's full of grace;
And from Jerusalem, through the earth,
The word of God take place.
5. Come then, O house of Israel, come,
Nor special favor flight;
Submit to what the Lord reveals,
Walk in his saving light.
