Hymn H103

Hail to the Lord's anointed!
Great David's greater son;
Hail ! in the time appointed,
His reign on earth begun.

He comes to break oppression,
To set the captive free;
To take away transgression,
To rule in equity.

He comes with succour speedy,
To those who suffer wrong;
To help the poor and needy,
And bid the weak be strong;

To give them songs for sighing,
Their darkness turn to light,
Who, languishing and dying,
Are perishing from sight.

Through changing generations,
With justice, mercy, truth,
While stars maintain their stations,
And moons renew their youth,

He shall come down like showers,
Upon the fruitful earth,
And love, joy hope, like flowers,
Spring in His path to birth.

Kings shall fall down before Him
And gold and incense bring:
All nations shall adore Him,
His praise all nations sing.

Over every for victorious,
He on His throne shall rest,
From age to age more glorious,
Allblessing and allblest.
