Representative Text

1 Father, is not thy promise pledged
To thine exalted Son,
That through the nations of the earth
Thy word of life shall run?

2 "Ask, and I give the heathen lands
For thine inheritance,
And to the world's remotest ends
Thine empire shall advance."

3 Hast thou not said the blinded Jews
Shall their Redeemer own;
While Gentiles to his standard crowd,
And bow before his throne?

4 Are not all kingdoms, tribes and tongues
Under the expanse of heaven,
To the dominion of thy Son
Without exception given?

5 From east to west, from north to south,
Then be his name adored!
Let earth, with all its millions, shout
Hosannas to the Lord!
