135. Arise, O King of Grace, Arise

1 Arise, O King of grace, arise,
and enter to thy rest:
thy people wait with longing eyes
thus to be owned and blessed.

2 Enter with all thy glorious train,
thy Spirit and thyh word;
all that the Ark did once contain
could no such grace afford.

3 Here, mighty God, accept our vows,
here let thy praise be spread;
bless the provisions of thy house
and fill thy poor with bread.

4 Here let the Son of David reign,
let God's Anointed shine;
justice and truth his court maintain
with love and power divine.

5 Clothe all thy ministers with grace,
let truth their tongues employ,
that in the Savior's righteousness
thy saints may shout for joy.
