To Jerusalem we've come

To Jerusalem we've come,
We are through with Babylon,
We have gathered to be one,
  O glory be to God!
Of the teachings we're bereft,
All opinions we have left,
Spirit from the soul is cleft,
  In the local churches now.
  Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
We are all in one accord
For the building of the Lord.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
We are living in the local churches now!
That recovery may proceed
Real priests are what we need—
Those who live in Christ indeed,
  O glory be to God!
Saturated with the Lord,
They have Christ as their reward.
These the building work afford
  In the local churches now.
And the kingship we must see
With divine authority—
To this rule we'll all agree,
  O glory be to God!
To the Spirit we'll submit
For the church's benefit—
This is His prerequisite
  In the local churches now.
We the altar must obtain,
Have our all upon it lain.
The burnt-offering must be slain,
  O glory be to God!
This we never should dispute,
For the church be absolute,
All that's otherwise uproot
  In the local churches now.
The foundation now is laid—
O what glory doth pervade!
We are all with joy arrayed,
  O glory be to God!
Let us raise a mighty shout—
They will hear us far without,
And the enemy we'll rout
  In the local churches now.
