Fall down, ye nations! and adore
Jehovah on the mercy-seat;
Like prostrate seas on every shore
That cast their billows at your feet.

Let hallelujahs to the skies,
With ocean’s everlasting sound,
The voice of many waters, rise
Day without night, as time goes round.

Come from the East with gifts, ye kings!
With gold, and frankincense, and myrrh;
Where’er the morning spreads her wings,
Let man to God his vows prefer.

Come from the West! the bond, the free;
His easy service make your choice;
Ye isles of the Pacific sea,
Like halcyon nests, in God rejoice.

Come from the South! through desert sands
A highway for the Lord prepare;
Let Ethiopia stretch her hands
And Libya pour her soul in prayer.

Come from the North! let Europe raise
In all her languages one song;
Give God the glory, power and praise,
That to His holy name belong.
