But Who Shall See?
By Thomas Moore
BUT who shall see the glorious day
  When, throned on Zion’s brow,
The Lord shall rend that veil away
  Which hides the nations now?
When earth no more beneath the fear        5
  Of His rebuke shall lie;
When pain shall cease, and every tear
  Be wiped from every eye.
Then, Judah, thou no more shalt mourn
  Beneath the heathen’s chain;        10
Thy days of splendour shall return,
  And all be new again.
The Fount of Life shall then be quaffed
  In peace by all who come!
And every wind that blows shall waft        15
  Some long-lost exile home!
