When the lion lies down with the lamb,
When the weary all rise up and run,
When the hungry are fed
At the final great wedding feast.
When the nations forget how to fight,
When injustice lies dead in the light,
When the peoples oppressed
By their enemies are released.
Then the Prince of Peace will take his throne
And will judge between the nations.
And the weapons of war will be broken down
And used for the good of all in the new creation.
When the leopard is led by a child
When the martyrs have ended their trials
When the warriors fall
And the honour goes to the weak.
When the angels are heard in the skies
When believers have lifted their eyes
When the earth is made new
And inherited by the meek.
And the earth will be full of the knowledge of God
As the waters they cover the sea.
Yes the earth will be full of the knowledge of God
As the waters they cover the sea
(REPEAT BRIDGE AND CHORUS)
