   1. Hail the day so long expected
      Hail the day of long release,
      Zion's walls are now erected
      And her watchmen publish peace.
      Throughout Chilo;s wide dominions
      Hear the trumpet loudly roar.

      Babylon is fallen, is fallen, is fallen,
      Babylon is fallen, to rise no more.
      Babylon is fallen, is fallen, is fallen,
      Babylon is fallen, to rise no more.

   2. All the merchants stand in wonder
      What is this has come to pass?
      Murmuring like a distant thiinder
      Crying O alas, alas.
      Swell the ranks ye kings and nobles,
      Priests and people rich and poor.

      Babylon is fallen, is fallen, is fallen,
      Babylon is fallen, to rise no more.
      Babylon is fallen, is fallen, is fallen,
      Babylon is fallen, to rise no more.

   3. Sound the trunpet in Mourt 7ion
      Christ is come a second time,
      Ruling with a rod of iron
      All who now as foes combine.
      Babel's garments we reiected
      And our fellowship is sure.

      Babylon is fallen, is fallen, is fallen,
      Babylon is fallen, to rise no more.
      Babylon is fallen, is fallen, is fallen,
      Babylon is fallen, to rise no more.
