1. The Advent of Our King

1 The advent of our King
Our prayers must now employ,
And we must hymns of welcome sing
In strains of holy joy.

2 The everlasting Son
Incarnate deigns to be,
Himself a servant's form puts on
To set his servants free.

3 O Zion's Daughter, rise
To meet your lowly King,
Nor let a faithless heart despise
The peace he comes to bring.

4 As judge, on clouds of light,
He soon will come again
And his true members all unite
With him in heav'n to reign.

5 Before the dawning Day
Let sin's dark deeds be gone,
The sinful self be put away,
The new self now put on.

6 All glory to the Son,
Who comes to set us free,
With Father, Spirit, ever one
Through all eternity.
