ref. = Mic. 4:2
This song is based on Micah 4: 14, in which the prophet announces the rule of the LORD God in the last days, when the nations will flock to worship the LORD and peace shall reign. This prophecy will reach its fullest expression in the new heaven and earth, but Christians already see evidence of God's kingdom today wherever the Word of the LORD is proclaimed.
Calvin Seerveld (PHH 22) versified Micah's prophecy for the Psalter Hymnal in 1985 "to put this deeply comforting promise (found also in Isaiah 2:2-4) to song for God's people to sing."
Advent; worship services focusing on justice and peace, God's kingdom, or the end of war; prayer for peace efforts by governments, leaders, or organizations.
