1 Behold the glorious dawning bright
Of the millennial morn arise!
The prelude of the promised light
Now gladdens the expecting skies.
2 And shall not those awake, who claim
Their hearts and hopes on high to place?
Who bear the Savior’s sacred name,
While He displays His boundless grace!
3 Lo, Jesus comes! His people know
The goings of their glorious king—
He rends the Heav’ns, the mountains flow,
And His redeemed His triumph sing.
4 How sweet His peaceful reign shall be!
His sway shall all the nations own;
All tongues shall bless Him—every knee
Shall bow submissive to His throne.
