1 The promise has been given
That our Lord will come again,
And earth will bloom with beauty
When with angels He appears;
Then He o’er sin will triumph,
And no death, no grief nor pain
Shall be in His dominion
While He reigns one thousand years.

Refrain:
One thousand years of gladness,
One thousand years of peace,
Shall come when Jesus reigns on earth
And bids all strife to cease;
One thousand years of blessing,
One thousand years of love,
Will make this world resplendent
With glory from above.

2 Then Satan shall be bound with chains
And in the pit be thrown,
Where, held a captive he no more
The nations can deceive;
While those who have been true to Christ
And suffering for Him known,
The resurrection call shall hear
And all their graves shall leave. [Refrain]

3 Oh! blessèd are the faithful
Who shall then be first to rise,
For over them the second death
No power can obtain;
Their Savior’s face they shall behold
With glad, adoring eyes,
And sharing in His kingdom, they
One thousand years shall reign. [Refrain]
