1 The Savior comes; O happiest sound
That ever reached our ears!
Diffusing peace to all around,
And quieting their fears.
2 He comes to execute the plan
Contrived by sovereign love,
And raise the fallen race of man
To lasting joys above.
3 He comes to bind the broken heart,
And make the wounded whole,
And solid comfort to impart
To every contrite soul.
4 He comes to bear our wants and pains,
To suffer and to bleed;
That we from Satan’s galling chains
For ever might be freed.
5 Come, gracious Lord, Thy work fulfill,
Thy great salvation bring;
And reign on Zion’s holy hill
The world’s triumphant king.
