Cowper.

The Kingdom of Heaven.

Hear what God, the Lord, hath spoken;

O my people, faint and few,

Comfortless, afflicted, broken,

Fair abodes I build for you;

164

Scenes of heartfelt tribulation

Shall no more perplex your ways;

You shall name your walls salvation,

And your gates shall all be praise.

There, in undisturbed possession,

Peace and righteousness shall reign;

Never shall you feel oppression,

Never hear of war again;

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.
