Hymn 321Play music
1 Oh, Yahweh, listen while we dare
The promises to plead,
Which Thine own sacred pages bear
To faithful Abram's seed.
2 For Thou hast passed Thy certain word
Nor canst Thyself deny-
That Jacob's race shall be restored
To favour and to joy.
3 Bring Thou, O Lord, the happy hour
When this shall be fulfilled;
And Thy dear Son, with mighty power,
To Israel be revealed.
4 Then Jew and Gentile shall combine
Emmanuel's name to praise;
And sound his mercy all divine
To everlasting days.
