Description

Named for Downing Place United Reformed Church, and its new building.


Text

Blest are the eyes that see;
The ears are blest that hear
The trumpet of the Jubilee,
The great Sabbatic year.

We plough, nor sow no more,
Nor toil for living bread;
For we've a never failing store,
A table plenteous spread.

The servant now is free;
The hateful heavy yoke
(That all might taste true liberty)
From ev'ry neck is broke.
