1 Mighty, yet meek, He comes to seek
And save the lost; to bring us peace,
And sweet release, at countless cost,
At countless cost.
2 Ye hearts that bleed, the bruisèd reed
He will not break. the smoldering fire
Shall not expire, He bids it wake,
He bids it wake.
3 Prisoners of hope, who helpless grope
In dungeon cells; lo, Jesus comes,
And from the tombs darkness dispels,
4 Behold our king shall judgment bring,
And right shall reign. the blind shall see,
And captives be unbound again,
5 Haste, bring the light that scatters night;
The nations wait, Lord not in vain
For Thee to reign in royal state,
In royal state.
