Christ's Day Of Power

Representative Text

1 Thy day of power has come!
This holy dawn divine!
And Zion's hills, renewed in youth,
With dews of beauty shine.

2 Now may the promised grace
Be fully shed abroad;
And all thy willing people haste
To do the will of God.

3 The Father wills that thou,
Exalted at his side,
Our only prophet, priest, and king,
Forever shalt abide:--

4 That all who love thy name,
One brotherhood shall be;
Kept by the standard of thy Word
From all divisions free!--

5 That all thy foes shall bow
Submissive at thy feet;
And heaven and earth with one accord
Thy perfect empire greet.

6 Let Jews and Gentiles cry,
Amen! God's will be done!
Jesus, who died upon the cross,
We hail thee on thy throne.
