Thy Day Of Power Has Come


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

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

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

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

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

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