God…hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in Heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth. And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.@Philippians 2:9-11

Thomas E. Vassar (1834-1918)

Not yet beneath our captain’s feet
Lie sin and death, and pain and woe;
Not yet the anthem, clear and sweet,
Of Heav’n, above, on earth, below.

Refrain

Rejoice and shout aloud,
For soon the time will be,
When light shall break the cloud,
When Christ shall reign supreme,
Eternally.

Yet come it shall, and even now
Faith views the victory as won;
All hearts must yield, all knees must bend
To God’s beloved, anointed Son.

Refrain

Like bugle blast, rings clear and strong
That pledge of prophet, from afar;
He shall not fail to right the wrong,
The isles shall speed the conqueror’s car.

Refrain

Amen, Lord Jesus, onward sweep,
The lingering ages wait the sway;
The scepter stretch o’er land and deep,
Bring in the golden noontide day.

Refrain

With yearning heart and lifted eye
The toilers watch and ever sing;
Thy kingdom, glory, power come nigh,
Let hallelujahs sweetly ring.
