Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Eternal God, thy power make known,
Make the whole earth confess
That thou art God, and thou alone
Dost rule in righteousness.

2 May the whole earth thy glory see,
And thy salvation know;
And to thy saints, who wait for thee,
Thy works and wonders show.

3 Lord Jesus, come, and take thy power,
And rule us by thy grace:
We wait for that expected hour
When we shall see thy face.

4 Our souls are longing for the day
When Jesus shall be King;
When he our stubborn sins shall slay,
And we his praise shall sing.

5 Our hearts rejoice in Jesu's name,
His word forbids our fear;
We love his gospel to proclaim
That all mankind may hear.

6 But dearest Lord, let us enjoy
That everlasting peace,
That nothing ever shall destroy,
Nor cause it to decrease,

7 Lord here we wait to know thy will,
And to obey the same,
May we our course on earth fulfill,
In honor to thy name.
