YES! we trust the day is breaking;

Joyful times are near at hand:

God-the mighty God is speaking,

By his word in every land:

When he chooses,

Darkness flies at his command.

While the foe becomes more daring,

While he enters like a flood,

Christ our Saviour is preparing

Means to spread his truth abroad

Every language

Soon shall tell the love of God.

Oh! 't is pleasant-'t is reviving,

To our hearts to hear each day,

Joyful news from far arriving,

How the gospel wins its way;

Those enlightening,

Who in death and darkness lay.

God of Jacob, high and glorious,

Let thy people see thy hand:

Let the gospel be victorious

Through the world-in every land;

Then shall idols

Perish, Lord, at thy command.
