Hear what God the Lord hath spoken - The future Peace and Glory of the Church (William Cowper/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

The future Peace and Glory of the Church.

Isaiah 60,15-20.

1. Hear what God the Lord hath spoken,
  "O my people, faint and few,
comfortless, afflicted, broken,
  fair abodes I build for you;
thorns and heart-felt tribulation
  shall no more perplex your ways:
you shall name your walls, Salvation,
  and your gates shall all be praise.

2. There, like streams that feed the garden,
  pleasures without end shall flow;
for the Lord, your faith rewarding,
  all his bounty shall bestow;
still in undisturbed possession
  peace and righteousness shall reign;
never shall you feel oppression,
  hear the voice of war again.

3. "Ye no more your suns descending,
  waning moons no more shall see;
but, your griefs for ever ending,
  find eternal noon in me;
God shall rise, and shining o'er you,
  change to day the gloom of night;
he, the Lord, shall be your glory,
  God your everlasting light."

William Cowper, The Complete Poetical Works of William Cowper, 1853(?), 239-240.
