Come, O thou King of kings

Full Text

1 Dome, O thou King of kings!
We've waited long for thee,
With haling in thy wings,
To set thy people free.
Come, thou desire of nations, come;
Come, thou desire of nations, come;
Let Israel now be gathered home.

2 Come make an end of sin,
And cleanse the earth by fire;
And righteousness bring in
That saints may tune the lyre,
With songs of joy, a happier strain,
With songs of joy, a happier strain,
To welcome in thy peaceful reign.

3 Hosannas now shall sound
From all the ransomed throng,
And glory echo round
A new triumphal song.
The wide expanse of heaven fill,
The wide expanse of heaven fill
With anthems sweet from Zion's hill.

4 Hail! Prince of life and peace!
Thrice welcome to thy throne!
While all the chosen race
Their Lord and Savior own.
The heathen nations bow the knee;
The heathen nations bow the knee,
And every tongue gives praise to thee.

Amen.
