RESTORATION OF THE JEWS




O that the Lordís salvation
Were out of Zion come,
To heal His ancient nation,
To lead His outcasts home!


How long the holy city
Shall heathen feet profane?
Return, O Lord, in pity;
Rebuild her walls again.


Let fall Thy rod of terror;
Thy saving grace impart;
Roll back the veil of error;
Release the fettered heart.


Let Israel, home returning,
Their lost Messiah see;
Give oil of joy for mourning,
And bind Thy church to Thee.


---Alternative verses---


Oh, that the Lordís salvation
Were out of Zion come,
To heal his ancient nation,
To lead his chosen home!
