45. Sing to the Lord, ye distant lands

Sing to the Lord, ye distant lands,
in every tone and tongue;
God's all-embracing grace demands
a new and nobler song.
Let heaven proclaim a joyful day!
Let joy be felt and seen!
Let cities shine in bright array,
and fields wear cheerful green.

Let an unusual joy surprise
the islands of the sea;
let mountains sink, let valleys rise,
prepare the Lord his way.
Say to the nations, Jesus reigns,
God's own almighty Son.
Yield to his rule; for Love sustains,
and grace surrounds his throne.

See how he comes! Christ comes to bless,
to share the love of God;
he shows the world God’s righteousness,
and sends the truth abroad.
Sing to the Lord, ye distant lands,
in every tone and tongue;
God's all-embracing grace demands
a new and nobler song.
