The Destiny of a Movement1. Hail the day so long expected,
    Hail, the year of full release;
Zion’s walls are now erected,
    And her watchmen publish peace;
In all countries and dominions
    Hear the trumpet loudly roar:

Refrain
Babylon is fallen, is fallen, is fallen,
Babylon is fallen to rise no more.

2. Come my people and forsake her,
    Cast away your slavish fears;
Hear the voice from heav’n proclaiming,
    It’s the end of all her years.
Raise your voices, she is fallen,
    Lift your banners up on high:
Refrain

3. Now her plagues are surely coming,
    And her merchants all shall mourn;
All their merchandise shall fail them,
    With the fire it shall burn;
Cry aloud now, kings and nobles,
    Priest and people, rich and poor:
Refrain

4. Blow the trumpet in Mount Zion,
    Christ will come the second time,
Ruling with a rod of iron,
    All who now His foes combine.
Babel’s garments we’ve rejected,
    And her mark of slavery:
Refrain
