Hymn 272Play music
1 Behold he comes! your Leader comes
With might and honour crowned:
A witness who shall spread My Name
To earth's remotest bound.
2 See! nations hasten to his call
From ev'ry distant shore:
Kings from afar shall bow to him,
nd Israel's God adore.
3 With joy and peace shall then be led
The glad converted lands:
The lofty mountains then shall sing,
The forests clap their hands.
4 Where briars grew midst barren wilds
Shall firs and myrtles spring;
And nature to its utmost bounds
Eternal praises sing.
