1. Lord over all, if Thou hast made,
Hast ransomed every soul of man,
Why is the grace so long delayed?
Why unfilled the saving plan?
The bliss for Adam’s race designed,
When will it reach to all mankind?

2. Art Thou the God of Jews alone?
And not the God of Gentiles, too?
To Gentiles make Thy goodness known;
Thy judgments to the nations show;
Awake them by the Gospel call;
Light of the world, illumine all!
Light of the world, illumine all!

3. As lightning launched from east to west,
The coming of Thy kingdom be;
To Thee, by angel hosts confessed,
Bow every soul and every knee;
Thy glory let all flesh behold,
And then fill up Thy heavenly fold.
And then fill up Thy heavenly fold.
