Oh, Geneva
Geneva of Calvin
Geneva of the Reformers
Where has God’s Glory gone?

I have a burden
A burden for you, Geneva
Experiencing the loss of God’s grace
Feeling the pain of your lost heritage
Undergoing the consequences of your backslidings and rebellions

I have a dream
A dream for you, Geneva
To see your fire rekindled, reignited
Seeing your roots of your past restored
To perceive your future glory outshining its first

I have a vision
A vision for you, Geneva
Breathing His presence into your localities
Inspiring His wonderful wisdom into your communes
Exalting His righteousness and justice into your government

May the Lord’s Glory return
Geneva, His re-established abode
Geneva, His favour
Oh, Geneva
