Hasten, Lord, the Glorious Time


Hasten, Lord, the glorious time
When, beneath Messiahís sway,
Every nation, every clime,
Shall the Gospel call obey.
Mightiest kings His power shall own,
Heathen tribes His Name adore;
Satan and his host oíerthrown,
Bound in chains, shall hurt no more.

As when soft and gentle showers
Fall upon the thirsty plain,
Springing grass and blooming flowers,
Clothe the wilderness again;
So Thy Spirit shall descend,
Softening every stony heart,
And its sweetest influence lend,
All thatís lovely to impart.

Then shall wars and tumults cease,
Then be banished grief and pain,
Righteousness and joy and peace,
Undisturbed shall ever reign.
Bless we, then, our gracious Lord,
Ever praise His glorious Name;
All His mighty acts record;
All His wondrous love proclaim.

This hymn was origin≠al≠ly writ≠ten in 4-line vers≠es. With a tune of a dif≠ferent me≠ter, the omit≠ted verse 6 can be used, as well:

Time shall sun and moon obscure,
Seas be dried, and rocks be rivín.
But His reign shall still endure,
Endless as the days of Heavín.
