1 When shall Thy name be known,
Great God, in every land;
And nations bow before Thy throne,
And bless Thy fostering hand?

2 When will the day arise
On our benighted race,
To shed on all below the skies
The beams of saving grace?

3 The promise has been made
That all shall know Thy name;
O grant us then Thy needful aid,
Thy wandering flock reclaim.

4 Let earth’s remotest bound
The joyful tidings hear,
That a Redeemer hath been found
To bring salvation near.

5 O let Thy grace complete
The work it has begun,
And put all foes beneath the feet
Of Thy victorious Son.
