Draw near

With haggard hearts each voice imparts this plea for constancy.

Draw near, dispel confounding fear, with Heaven’s clemency.

Each tongue, by supplicating lung, invoke bright morning’s rise!

Through darkest night let love’s Delight condole all mournful eyes.

Both soul and soil alike await Redemption’s crowning glory.

Meadow, mountain, healing fountain, proclaim Resurrection’s story!

Await, awake, for Mercy’s sake—from iniquity’s domain

Shall every creature be restored to God’s sure Rule and Reign.
