Joseph Proud (1745-1826).

From the Chauvenet Collection (🔊 pdf nwc).

Jerusalem, arise,
The heavenly glory view;
The light is come, lift up thine eyes,
All things are now made new.

Now ended is the reign
Of error’s gloomy night:
The Sun of heaven appears again
And beams celestial light.

Now living waters flow
To cheer the humble soul:
From sea to sea the rivers go,
And bless where’er they roll.

Jesus shall rule alone,
The world shall hear His Word;
By one blest name shall He be known,
The universal Lord.
