The lamb and the lion shall lie down together:
For the venom will cease, when the devil is bound,
And peace like a river, extend the world round.
 
8 Go publish the gospel, the truth of the Savior,
That the poor and the meek may begin to find favor,
And rejoice in their coming Redeemer and friend;
And lo! he is with you henceforh to the end.
 
9 O go and invite them, regardless of trouble,
The rich and the learned, the wise and the noble,
That the guests may be ready, (when Jesus shall come,)
To welcome forever, the holy Bridegroom.
 
10 Go gather the willing, and push them together,
Yea, push them to Zion (the saints’ rest forever,)
Where the best that the heavens and earth can afford,
Will grace the great marriage and feast of the Lord.
