442. Arise, O God

1 Arise, O God, and shine
in all thy saving might,
and prosper each design
to spread thy glorious light:
let healing streams of mercy flow,
that all the earth thy truth may know,
that all the earth thy truth may know.

2 Bring distant nations near
to sing thy glorious praise;
let ev'ry people hear
and learn thy holy ways:
reign, mighty God, assert thy cause,
and govern by thy righteous laws,
and govern by thy righteous laws.

3 Send forth thy glorious pow'r,
that Gentiles all may see,
and earth present her store
in converts born to thee:
God, our own God, thy church O bless,
and fill the world with righteousness,
and fill the world with righteousness.

4 To God, the only wise,
the one immortal King,
let hallelujahs rise
from ev'ry living thing:
let all that breathe, on ev'ry coast,
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
