From Himalaya His Love extends Cross rivers deep and mountains wide. With mighty steps, He strides, He strides. No border, creed, nor race He sees No harm, no scorn, can thus impede. Himalaya O Himalaya, where Love runs free. As mountains fall and oceans rise, New Earth emerges from on high Demarcations mine and yours Swept away as oceans roar. Earthly Fire and Solar Sun Holy, Holy, onwards come.
Ancient wars and ancient creeds Breed bitter fruit and bitter seed Blood is spilled and shed again, While Love unseen falls soft like rain.
Neath sorrowed skies, Death stalks by night Through cities feared, devoid of Light. To faces turned, His Love it streams Pervading all, restoring dreams. To hearts that ache for peace once more Sweet peace, sweet rest and end of war. By Hebron’s streets in deepest night Her Light shines forth, Her courage bright. And Darkness flees before Her gaze Her Sword of Justice clears the way. She Lights the path wherein Hope treads With Liberty, She walks ahead. Ancient wars and ancient creeds Breed bitter fruit and bitter seed. Shadows stealing through the night Calling, calling for the Light. Candles lit and hearts a weeping Love and comfort for the keeping. Vigils met as peace abounds While loss is felt and silence sounds. Might returns and victory strong Voices one are raised in song.
Eternal Flame, He burns so bright Through darkest day and darker nights. Burning, burning, burning bright New Jerusalem: shine forth your Light! Through darker days and darker nights New Jerusalem: shine forth your Light!
