TLH#64 Jesus, Thy Church with Longing Eyes

TLH#63  |  All Hymns  |  TLH#66

1. Jesus, Thy Church with longing eyes
For Thine expected coming waits,
When will the promised Light arise
And glory beam from Zion’s gates?

2. E’en now, when tempests round us fall,
And wintry clouds o’ercast the sky,
Thy words with pleasure we recall
And deem that our redemption’s nigh.

3. Come, gracious Lord, our hearts renew,
Our foes repel, our wrongs redress,
Man’s rooted enmity subdue,
And crown Thy Gospel with success.

4. Oh, come and reign o’er every land;
Let Satan from his throne be hurled,
All nations bow to Thy command,
And grace revive a dying world.

5. Teach us in watchfulness and prayer
To wait for the appointed hour
And fit us for Thy grace to share
The triumphs of Thy conquering power.
