Representative Text

1 Lord of all worlds, incline Thy bounteous ear,
Thy children’s voice, in tender mercy, hear;
Bear Thy blest promise, fixed as hills, in mind,
And shed renewing grace on lost mankind.

2 Let Zion’s walls before Thee ceaseless stand,
Dear as Thine eye, and graven on Thy hand;
From earth’s far regions Jacob’s sons restore,
Oppressed by man, and scourged by Thee no more.

3 Then shall mankind no more in darkness mourn,
Then happy nations in a day be born;
From east to west Thy glorious name be one,
And one pure worship hail the eternal Son.

4 Then shall Thy saints exult with joy divine;
Their virtues quicken, and their lives refine;
Heaven o’er the world unfold a brighter day,
And Jesus spread His reign from sea to sea!
