A thousand years are as a day:
Two thousand years have passed away -
Again the vision comes to me,
A great crowd of humanity, -
The synagogue, the house of prayer,
The Son of Man is preaching there!
The mystery of sacred places,
The beauty of gigantic spaces,
The vast and gorgeous house the Jew
Had builded for the God he knew,
The God of battle and of wrath
Who scattered nations in His path
But to whose furies would suffice
The piteous blood of sacrifice!
The altar that an ancient race
Had consecrated in that place,
The jewels of the altar gleam
As through an Oriental dream,
And like the soft call of a dream
The sweet voice of the Nazarene.
