1. Lift up thine eyes, O watchman,
the armies of the Lord
Are riding forth to conquest
with buckler, shield and sword;
Glad tidings unto Zion,
that valiant host shall ring,
And shout aloud, Hosanna!
The Lord, the Lord is king;
And shout aloud, Hosanna!
The Lord, the Lord is king.

2. What dost thou see, O watchman?
What dost thou see afar?
The gleaming of a banner,
the rising of a star.
Then cry aloud, O watchman,
with trumpet voice proclaim,
To all a full salvation,
through Christ, the Savior’s name,
To all a full salvation,
through Christ, the Savior’s name.

3. That radiant banner gleaming,
that Star divinely bright,
Shall bear to every nation
the blessèd Gospel light;
All kingdoms, crowns, and scepters,
before the cross shall fall,
And Christ shall reign triumphant,
the king and Lord of all;
And Christ shall reign triumphant,
the king and Lord of all.
