Come, Thou Glorious Day of Promise



  1. 1. Come, thou glorious day of promise;

    Come and spread thy cheerful ray,

    When the scattered sheep of Israel

    Shall no longer go astray,

    When hosannas,

    When hosannas

    With united voice they’ll cry.

  2. 2. Lord, how long wilt thou be angry?

    Shall thy wrath forever burn?

    Rise, redeem thine ancient people;

    Their transgressions from them turn.

    King of Israel,

    King of Israel,

    Come and set thy people free.

  3. 3. Oh, that soon thou wouldst to Jacob

    Thy enliv’ning Spirit send!

    Of their unbelief and misery

    Make, O Lord, a speedy end.

    Lord, Messiah!

    Lord, Messiah!

    Prince of Peace o’er Israel reign.
