Representative Text

1 From all the dark places
Of earth's heathen races,
O see how the thick shadows fly!
The voice of salvation
Awakes ev'ry nation,
"Come over and help us," they cry.

Refrain:
The kingdom is coming, O tell ye the story,
God's banner exalted shall be!
The earth shall be full of His knowledge and glory,
As waters that cover the sea!

2 The sunlight is glancing
O'er armies advancing
To conquer the kingdoms of sin;
Our Lord shall possess them,
His presence shall bless them,
His beauty shall enter them in. [Refrain]

3 With shouting and singing,
And jubilant ringing,
Their arms of rebellion cast down,
At last ev'ry nation
The Lord of salvation,
Their King and Redeemer, shall crown! [Refrain]
