1 Arise in all Thy splendor, Lord,
Let power attend Thy gracious word;
Unveil the beauties of Thy face,
And show the glories of Thy grace.
2 Diffuse Thy light and truth abroad,
And be Thou known th’almighty God;
Make bare Thine arm, Thy power display,
While truth and grace Thy scepter sway.
3 Send forth Thy messengers of peace,
Make Satan’s reign and empire cease;
Let Thy salvation, Lord, be known,
That all the world Thy power may own.
4 Tho’ darkness o’er the earth pervades,
And men are plunged in dismal shades;
God will arise, at the set time,
On Zion, with a light divine.
5 Then nations, with His grace replete,
Shall spread their trophies at His feet;
Clothed with immortal bliss, to prove,
The power and greatness of His love.
6 O may the triumphs of Thy grace
Abound, while righteousness and peace
In mild and lovely forms display
The glories of the latter day.
