The voice of God shall reach you,
Wherever you are found;
And call you back from bondage,
That you may sing his praise
In Zion and Jerusalem
In these, the latter days.
 
4 Then gather up for Zion,
Ye saints, throughout the land,
And clear the way before you,
As God shall give command:
Tho’ wicked men and devils
Exert their pow’r, ’tis vain,
Since him who is Eternal
Has said you shall obtain.
 
Hymn 66 • Let Zion in her beauty rise
HYMN 66. P. M.
 
1 Let Zion in her beauty rise;
Her light begins to shine,
Ere long her King will rend the skies,
Majestic and divine.
The gospel’s spreading through the land,
A people to prepare,
To meet the Lord and Enoch’s band,
Triumphant in the air.
 
2 Ye heralds sound the gospel trump,
To earth’s remotest bound; [p. 86]
