1 The Lord will come and not be slow,
his footsteps cannot err;
before him righteousness shall go,
his royal harbinger.
2 Truth from the earth, like to a flow'r,
shall bud and blossom then,
and justice, from her heav'nly bow'r,
look down on mortal men.
3 Rise, God, and judge the earth in might,
this wicked earth redress;
for you are he who shall by right
the nations all possess.
4 For great you are, and wonders great
by your strong hand are done:
you in your everlasting seat
remain the Lord alone.
