HAIL to the Lord's anointed!

Great David's greater Son;

Hail in the time appointed,

His reign on earth begun!

He comes to break oppression,

To set the captive free,

To take away transgression,

And rule in equity.

He shall come down like showers

Upon the fruitful earth,

And love and joy, like flowers,

Spring in his path to birth:

Before him, on the mountains,

Shall peace, the herald, go,

And righteousness, in fountains,

From hill to valley flow.

For him shall prayer unceasing,

And daily vows ascend;

His kingdom still increasing,

A kingdom without end;

The tide of time shall never

His covenant remove;

His name shall stand forever;

That name to us is-Love.
