1. O God, of all the Maker,
 Thy gift as seer display,
 Reveal to us the glory
 Of They longpromised day.
 Is not the time approaching,
 By prophets long foretold,
 When all shal dwell together
 One Shepherd and one fold?
 
2. May all that now divides us
 Resolve and pass afar
 Like shadows flee with darkness
 Before the morning star.
 May faith in man grow stronger,
 May strife and discord cease,
 The scar of war effacing
 Thro' harmony and peace.
 
3. Tomorrow, O, tomorrow
 What hope we have in thee
 To gain the crowning beauty
 Of what is yet to be.
 When all the world about us
 Shall evermore improve,
 When high and low combining
 As brothers onward move.

4. Tomorrow, O, tomorrow
 Replete with wholesome joy,
 No more shall pain and sorrow
 Humanity annoy.
 In sweet anticipation
 We bear the hard delay
 To share with all creation
 
Thy long, longpromised day.
