The Future Peace and Glory of the Church. Isa 60:15-20
William Cowper


The future peace and glory of the church.
Isa 60:15-20

Hear what God the LORD hath spoken,

O my people, faint and few;

Comfortless, afflicted, broken,

Fair abodes I build for you:

Themes of heart-felt tribulation

Shall no more perplex your ways;

You shall name your walls, Salvation,

And your gates shall all be praise.

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.

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.
