1 His kingdom comes! ye saints rejoice,
Lift up your heads, exalt your voice
To swell the lofty strain;
Proclaim the joyful news abroad;
The mighty King! the glorious Lord!
He comes on earth to reign.
2 High o'er the pomp of Gentile state,
On chosen Zion's royal seat
The Lord God sets his throne;
Now shall the lands confess his power,
And all the earth his Name adore,
And serve the Lord alone!
3 Before the terrors of his face
Let mortal man his pride abase,
And every monarch fall;
Prostrate be ev'ry haughty foe,
The pomp and power of earth lie low,
And God be all in all.
