O North, with all thy vales of green,
O South, with all thy palms!
From peopled towns and vales between,
Uplift the voice of psalms;
Raise, ancient East, the anthem high,
And let the youthful West reply.
Lo, in the clouds of heaven appears
God's well-beloved Son;
He brings a train of brighter years;
His kingdom is begun.
He comes, a guilty world to bless
With mercy, truth, and righteousness.
O Father, haste the promised hour,
When at his feet shall lie
All rule, authority, and power,
Beneath the ample sky;
When he shall reign from pole to pole,
The Lord of every human soul:
When all shall heed the words he said
Amid their daily cares,
And by the loving life he led
Shall seek to pattern theirs;
And he who conquered death shall win
The mightier conquest over sin.
The Hymnal [of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the USA]
O North, with all thy vales of green. W. C. Bryant. [Foreign Missions.] This is in his Poetical Works, ed. Parker Godwin, N.Y., 1883, vol. ii., p. 228, reprinted from his privately printed Hymns, 1869. It is headed "Thou has put all things under His feet," but bears no date or place of composition. Its phraseology is more suited for use in North America than in Great Britain, but it has passed into various English collections., e.g., the Scotch Church Hymnary , 1898, Worship Song, 1905, The English Hymnal , 1906, &c. [Rev. James Mearns, M.A.]
