When Christ appears within the hearts of men,
The bells of love shall ring from sea to sea,
Across the land from mountain peak to peak,
To cheer the thought of all humanity.
When Christ appears the gray earth shall be new,
The flowers of day be fairer than of old.
The morning's red, the sunset's golden glow,
Shall in their graciousness fresh blessings hold.
When Christ appears, ah, yes, when Christ appears,
The faint shall be made strong, the bowed form straight;
And the broad river of an untold peace
Shall bear away all sorrow and all hate.
