1 Hail to God's own anointed,
great David's greater Son!
Hail in the time appointed,
God's reign on earth begun!
Christ comes to break oppression,
to set the captive free;
to take away transgression,
and rule in equity.

2 He comes with justice surely
to those who suffer wrong;
to help the poor and needy,
and bid the weak be strong;
to give them songs for sighing,
their darkness turn to light,
whose souls, condemned and dying,
are precious in his sight.

3 Christ shall come down like showers
upon the fruitful earth;
and love, joy, hope, 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.

4 To 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.
