1 Hail, Jesus! Israel's hope and light!
Prophets and priests prepared thy way;
thy peple through the breaking night
with waiting joy forsaw thy day.
2 Thine advent, Lord, revives the world;
thy life shall waiting nations know;
the banner of thy truth unfurled
shall glorious on the mountains glow.
3 Those vales, where darkness lingers last,
now kindle in prophetic light;
the morning breaks, forever past
the fearful reign of ancient night.
4 Hail, glorious advent, heav'nly birth!
Shout, saints, in triumph! Christ appears;
good will to all, and peace on earth
reign on throughout the golden years!
