Charles Tennant
From The State of Man

The end of war and bloodshed for a time;
For out of Zion shall go forth the law,
And from Jerusalem the word of God,
Which, by the remnant sav’d on that great day,
Shall o’er the earth’s remotest parts be spread,
Then shall the Lord among the nations judge,
And many people he shall then rebuke:
And into plough-shares they shall beat their swords,
And into pruning hooks shall turn their spears:
Nation against nation shall not lift up
The sword, nor shall they learn war.
