1.  Judge eternal, throned in splendor,

Lord of hosts and King of kings,

With Thy living fire of judgement

Purge this land of bitter things;

Solace all its wide dominion

With the healing of Thy wings.

2.  Still the weary folk are pining

For that hour that brings release;

And the city’s crowded clangor

Cries aloud for sin to cease;

And the homesteads and the woodlands

Plead in silence for their peace.

3.  Crown, O God, Thine own endeavor;

Cleave our darkness with Thy sword;

Feed the faint and hungry peoples

With the richness of Thy Word;

Cleanse the body of the nation

Through the glory of the Lord.
