Behold He comes! your Leader comes
With might and honour crowned;
A Witness who shall spread My name
To earth's remotest bound.
See! Nations hasten to His call
From every distant shore;
Isles, yet unknown, shall bow to Him,
And Israel's God adore.
With joy and peace shall then be led
The glad converted lands;
The lofty mountains then shall sing,
The forests clap their hands.
Where briars grew midst barren wilds
Shall firs and myrtles spring;
and nature, through its utmost bounds,
Eternal praise sing.
