1 Babel’s walls, so long obscuring
All the ways of truth and right,
Crumble now before the shining
Of the glorious evening light.

Babel’s fallen, hallelujah!
Hear the saints in chorus sing;
From the summit of Mount Zion,
Hear their glad hosannas ring.

2 Now are Zion’s walls erected,
And her watchmen fear the Lord;
From the heights of full salvation
Loud proclaim His holy word. [Refrain]

3 Oft they told us that no mortal
Could enjoy this perfect peace;
But we’ve found a full fruition,
And the year of sweet release. [Refrain]

4 Hail the day of heav’nly freedom!
Though so long has been the night,
Brighter seems the radiant splendor
As we reach the evening light. [Refrain]
