232. Hail to the Lord's Anointed

1 Hail to the Lord's anointed,
great David's greater son!
Hail, in the time appointed,
his reign on earth begun!
He comes to break oppression,
to set the captive free,
to take away transgression,
and rule in equity.

2 Kings shall fall down before him,
and gold and incense bring;
all nations shall adore him,
his praise all people sing;
for he shall have dominion
o'er river, sea, and shore,
far as the eagle's pinion
or dove's light wing can soar.

3 He shall come down like showers
upon the fruitful earth,
and love, joy, hope, like flowers,
spring in his path to birth;
before him on the mountains
shall peace, the herald, go;
and righteousness in fountains
from hill to valley flow.

4 O'er every foe victorious,
he on his throne shall rest,
from age to age more glorious,
all blessing and all blest;
the tide of time shall never
his covenant remove;
his name shall stand forever;
that name to us is Love.
