1.  Arise, O King of grace, arise,

And enter to thy rest;

Lo! thy church waits, with longing eyes,

Thus to be own’d and blest.

2.  Here, mighty God, accept our vows,

Here let thy praise be spread:

Bless the provisions of thy house,

And fill thy poor with bread.

3.  Here let the Son of David reign,

Let God’s Anointed shine;

Justice and truth his court maintain,

With love and pow’r divine.

4.  Here let him hold a lasting throne,

And as his kingdom grows,

Fresh honors shall adorn his crown,

And shame confound his foes.
