Hymn 315

Play music

1 For Zion's sake I will not rest,
Saith God, nor hold my peace
Until Jerusalem be blest,
And Judah's sorrows cease;
2 Until her righteousness return
As daybreak after night:
The lamp of her salvation burn
With everlasting light.
3 The Gentiles shall her glory see,
And kings declare her fame;
Appointed unto her shall be
A new and holy name.
4 Go through, go through,
prepare the ways,
The gates wide open spread;
The standard of the people raise,
To glorious triumph led.
5 In ev'ry clime, through ev'ry land,
Proclaim the joyful word:
The holy people are at hand,
Redeemed of the Lord!
