Lyrics

Lion of Judah’s tribe, draw near,
Let all mankind Thy roarings hear,
Let all mankind revere Thy power;
Utter Thy voice, almighty Lord,
Pronounce the desolating word,
And thunder from Thy heav’nly tower!

Crown Thy impatient people’s hope,
And fill our faith and knowledge up,
The kingdom to Thy saints restore;
And when Thy church is filled with Thee,
Pure holiness Thy church shall be,
And sin shall never enter more.
