The Lord will come and not be slowAuthor: John Milton
Published in 71 hymnals
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.
