Great God, Whose universal sway


Great God, Whose universal sway
The known and unknown worlds obey,
Now give the kingdom to Thy Son,
Extend His power, exalt His throne.

Thy scepter well becomes His hands,
All Heavín submits to His commands;
His justice shall avenge the poor,
And pride and rage prevail no more.

With power He vindicates the just,
And treads thíoppressor in the dust;
His worship and His fear shall last,
Till hours, and years, and time be past.

As rain on meadows newly mown,
So shall He send His influence down;
His grace on fainting souls distils,
Like heavínly dew on thirsty hills.

The heathen lands that lie beneath
The shades of overspreading death,
Revive at His first dawning light,
And deserts blossom at the sight.

The saints shall flourish in His days,
Dressed in the robes of joy and praise
Peace, like a river from His throne,
Shall flow to nations yet unknown.
