Hail to the Lord's anointed

Author: James Montgomery (1771-1854)Meter: in 757 hymnalsScripture: 1 Samuel 16:1-13Lyrics: 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 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 Kings shall fall down before him, and gold and incense bring; all nations shall adore him, his praise all people sing. To him shall prayer unceasing and daily vows ascend, his kingdom still increasing, a kingdom without end. 5 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 for ever: that name to us is Love.Topics: Adoration; Advent; Covenant; Epiphany (feast); KingdomUsed With Tune: CRÜGER
