THE Prince of salvation is coming, prepare,

A way in the desert his blessings to share;

He comes to release us from sins and from woes,

And make the rude wilderness bloom like the rose.

His reign shall extend from the east to the west,

Compose all the tumults of nature to rest;

The day-spring of glory illumine the skies,

And ages on ages of happiness rise.

Hail scenes of felicity, transport, and joy,

When hatred and passion shall cease to annoy;

Rich blessings of grace from above shall be given,

And life only serve as a passage to heaven.
