Come, thou glorious day of promise,
Come, and spread thy cheerful ray,
When the scattered sheep of Israel
Shall no longer go astray;
When hosannahs, when hosannahs
With united voice they cry.
Lord, how long wilt Thou be angry?
Shall Thy wrath for ever burn?
Rise, redeem Thine ancient people,
Let them to their land return:
King of Israel, King of Israel,
Come and set Thy people free.
O, that Thou wouldst soon to Jacob
Thin enlivening Spirit send;
Of their unbelief and misery
Make, O Lord, a speedy end:
Lord, Messiah, Lord, Messiah,
Quick to Israel descend.
