1. Jehovah, Lord of heav'n and earth,
Thy word of truth proclaim!
Oh, may it spread from pole to pole,
Till all shall know thy name;
Oh, may it spread from pole to pole,
Till all shall know thy name.

2. We long to see thy Church increase,
Thine own new kingdom grow,
That all the earth may live in peace,
And heav'n be seen below;
That all the earth may live in peace,
And heav'n be seen below.

3. Roll on thy work in all its pow'r!
The distant nations bring!
In thy new kingdom may they stand,
And own thee God and King;
In thy new kingdom may they stand,
And own thee God and King.

4. One general chorus then shall rise
From men of ev'ry tongue,
And songs of joy salute the skies,
By ev'ry nation sung;
And songs of joy salute the skies,
By ev'ry nation sung.

Text: Anon.
