Once far, now near.
Wise men scoff, while simple revere.
Rich men laugh as missiles take aim,
But the poor of the earth know the price of this game.
Once old, now new.
A word from God through the lips of a Jew.
The prophets of old see armies draw near,
In perilous times when Messiah appears.
Once hate, now love.
From sword to plowshare.
From serpent to dove.
One God, One King.
Peace will the Lamb bring.
