The earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.@Habakkuk 2:14

John Brown’s Body, possibly by John William Steffe ( pdf nwc).

My soul has seen a vision
Of the conquest of the world,
When Satan and his forces
From their battlements are hurled,
And o’er the land the Bible,
Like a signal flag unfurled,
Speaks loyalty to Christ.


We shall see the truth so glorious
Over all the earth victorious,
For the standard lifted over us
Is loyalty to Christ.

No more shall strife and hatred
Bring dishonor to our God,
For righteousness, whose work is peace,
Shall spread her wings abroad;
And they who win the conquest
Are the bearers of the Word,
In loyalty to Christ.


The desert place shall blossom,
And the wilderness rejoice;
The lame shall leap, the blind shall see,
The dumb lift up their voice;
The floods shall clap their hands, the earth
Shall make a joyful noise,
In loyalty to Christ.
