The Advent Of Our King : Lyrics
1. The advent of our King
Our prayers must now employ,
And we must hymns of welcome sing
In strains of holy joy.
2. The everlasting Son
Incarnate deigns to be;
Himself a servant’s form puts on
To set His servants free.
3. O Zion’s Daughter, rise
To meet thy lowly King,
Nor let thy faithless heart despise
The peace He comes to bring.
4. As Judge, on clouds of light,
He soon will come again
And His true members all unite
With Him in heaven to reign.
5. All glory to the Son,
Who comes to set us free,
With Father, Spirit, ever One,
Through all eternity.
- Lyrics by Charles Coffin (1676 – 1749), translated by John Chandler (1806 – 1876). Public Domain.
