The Mountain of the LORD
Lyrics & Music: Mark Graham, from Micah 4:1-5

In the last days it shall come to pass
That the mountain of the house of the Lord
Shall be lifted o'er the other hills,
And the nations will come and say:

CHORUS:
Oh, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
To the house of Jacob's God.
He will teach us His ways, we will walk in His paths
Let us go to the mountain of the Lord.

Out of Zion shall the law go forth,
From Jerusalem the word of the Lord;
He will judge the nations of the earth,
And rebuke strong and distant lands.

(CHORUS)

Into plowshares they shall beat their swords,
Into pruning hooks their spears shall be made;
They shall not lift up their swords again,
They will learn the ways of war no more,

(CHORUS)

Underneath the vine and fig tree,
Ev'ry man shall sit in peace, unafraid,
For the Lord of hosts has spoken it,
and forever we will walk in His name.

(CHORUS)



On The Sabbath Day
Lyrics: Mark Graham
Music: Mark Warshavsky

On the sabbath day, holy sabbath day,
Happy day of rest,
Sing a song of thanks to Father God on high,
From whose hand we’re blessed,
Sing a song of thanks to Father God on high,
From whose hand we’re blessed.

From the setting sun to the setting sun,
Let your hearts rejoice,
Taste the goodness of a kingdom yet to come,
Lift to God your voice,
Taste the goodness of a kingdom yet to come,
Lift to God your voice.

Learn the word of God, learn the ways of God,
And when day is done,
Strengthened we will go to do the Father’s work
Till the week is run,
Strengthened we will go to do the Father’s work
Till the week is run.

On the seventh day, holy seventh day,
We will meet again,
Sing a song of thanks to Father God on high,
Our eternal Friend,
Sing a song of thanks to Father God on high,
Our eternal Friend.


In Christ There Is No East or West
Lyrics: John Oxenham
Music: Alexander Reinagle

In Christ there is no East or West,
in Him no South or North;
But one great fellowship of love
throughout the whole wide earth.

In Him shall true hearts everywhere
their high communion find;
His service is the golden cord
close binding all mankind.

Join hand then, brothers of the faith,
Whate’er your race may be.
Who serves my Father as a son
is surely kin to me.

In Christ now meet both East and West,
in Him meet South and North;
All Christly souls are one in him
throughout the whole wide earth.


 

In That Day
Lyrics: Mark Graham
Music: adapted from a traditional Hawaiian melody

I.

It was spoken by the prophet long ago,
In the last days Elijah's work would grow,
To tell the world the king is coming to His throne,
And by this it shall be known,

When the hearts of the fathers turn to the children
In that day, in that day,
And the hearts of the children turn in that same day
To their fathers and God’s way.

II. 

Go you therefore into every earthly land;
Let them know that my kingdom is at hand,
And when you teach them all I have commanded you,
You will make these words come true.

Let the hearts of the fathers turn to the children
On this day, on this day,
And the hearts of the children turn on this same day
To their fathers and God’s way.

III.

Soon the age of man’s dominion will be done,
In this end time, our hearts must all be one,
And when the king returns at last the world will see
God has one great family.

Let the hearts of the fathers turn to the children
On this day, on this day,
And the hearts of the children turn on this same day
To their fathers and God’s way.
