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
