335. The People Who in Darkness Walked

1 The people who in darkness walked
Have seen a glorious light;
The heavenly dawn broke forth on those
Who dwelt in death and night,
Who dwelt in death and night.

2 To greet you, Sun of Righteousness,
The gath'ring nations come,
Rejoicing as when reapers bring
Their harvest treasures home,
Their harvest treasures home.

3 To us a promised child is born,
To us a Son is given;
And on his shoulders ever rests
All power in earth and heaven,
All power in earth and heaven.

4 His name shall be the Prince of Peace
Forevermore adored,
And on his shoulders ever rests
The Mighty God and Lord,
The Mighty God and Lord.

5 His peace and righteous government
Shall over all extend;
On judgment and on justice based,
His reign shall never end,
His reign shall never end.
