The Advent of our God
Our prayers must now employ,
And we must meet him on his road
With hymns of holy joy.

The everlasting Son
Incarnate soon shall be :
He will a servant's form put on,
To make his people free.

Daughter of Zion, rise
And greet thy lowly King,
And do not wickedly despise
The mercies he will bring.

As Judge, in clouds of light,
He will come down again,
And all his scattered saints unite
With Him in Heaven to reign.

Before that dreadful day
May all our sin be gone ;
May the old man be put away,.
And the new man put on!

Praise to the Saviour Son
From all the angel Host:
Like praise be to the Father done,.
And to the Holy Ghost.
