Hail to the Lord's Anointed
Tune: Moville
Metre: 7676 D

 

Hail to the Lordís Anointed,

Great Davidís 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,

And 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

Whose souls, condemned and dying,

Were precious in his sight.

 

He shall come down like showers

Upon the fruitful earth,

And love, joy, hope, like flowers,

Spring in his path to birth.

Before him, on the mountains,

Shall peace, the herald, go;

And righteousness in fountains

From hill to valley flow.

 

For him shall prayer unceasing

And daily vows ascend,

His kingdom still increasing,

A kingdom without end.

The mountain dews shall nourish

A seed, in weakness sown,

Whose fruit shall spread and flourish

And shake like Lebanon .

 

Oíer every foe victorious,

He on his throne shall rest,

From age to age more glorious,

All blessing and all-blest.

The tide of time shall never

His covenant remove;

His name shall stand for ever;

That Name to us is Love.
