Representative Text

1 Hasten, Lord, that morn of glory,
When the world shall groan no more,
When the Gospel’s joyous story
Shall be spread from shore to shore.

2 Speed the glorious proclamation,
Let Messiah’s power increase;
Every tribe, and tongue, and nation,
Welcome in the Prince of Peace!

3 Wake your echoes, rocks of Kedar!
Midian! Ephah! own His grace!
Fir, and pine, and box, and cedar
Beautify His holy place!

4 Blessèd time, when every dwelling
Shall one joyful anthem raise;
Every heart with rapture swelling,
Thrilling every tongue with praise.

5 When the leopard and the lion,
With the lamb in peace shall lie,
And within the earthly Zion
Dwell the love that reigns on high.

6 Firmament, now glowing o’er us!
Mountains! rivers! isles! and sea!
All combine to swell the chorus
That will ring earth’s jubilee!
