Lyrics

Now blessing, honor, glory, praise
By angels hosts are sung;
The Church below her voice doth raise
To join the heavenly throng.

Adored be He who comes to bless
The nations with His love,
To show His truth and righteousness,
And every cloud remove.

Blessèd be He who comes to reign
In Zion’s happy land!
Jerusalem is built again,
And shall forever stand.

No more His kingdom shall decay;
No more the temple fall;
Here Jerusalem reigns with endless sway,
The King and Lord of all.
