Age of Gold. CMD.
An F♯ minor camp meeting tune in 4/4 time. Composed 2008.
Text from Church Psalmist, 1853.
1 LORD send thy word and let it fly
Armed with thy Spirit's power
Ten thousands shall confess its sway
And bless the saving hour
Beneath the influence of thy grace
The barren wastes shall rise
With sudden greens and fruits arrayed
A blooming paradise
4 Peace with her olive crown shall stretch
Her wings from shore to shore
The nations of the earth shall hear
The sound of war no more
Lord for those days we wait those days
Are in thy word foretold
Fly swifter sun and stars and bring
This promised age of gold
