Words: Thomas Kelly, 1806
1. Zion's King shall reign victorious;
all the earth shall own his sway;
he will make his kingdom glorious;
he will reign through endless day.
Nations now from God estranged
then shall see a glorious light;
night to day shall then be changed,
heaven shall triumph in the sight.
2. Then shall Israel, long dispersed,
mourning seek the Lord their God;
look on him whom once they pierced,
own and kiss the chastening rod.
Mighty King, thine arm revealing,
now thy glorious cause maintain;
bring the nations help and healing,
make them subject to thy reign.
