Hymn 253
6 6 6 6 8 8
1. All hail the glorious day,
By prophets long foretold,
When with harmonious lay,
The sheep of Israel's fold,
On Zion's hill his praise proclaim,
And shout hosanna to his name.

2. When Israel from afar,
And Judah scattered wide,
Shall to their land repair,
And there in peace abide;
Directed by Jehovah's hand,
Shall dwell in peace in Zion's land.

3. From Zion's heavenly mount,
Shall healing waters flow,
And near this holy fount
Will trees immortal grow,
Whose heavenly balm the kingdoms feel,
Whose leaves will all the nations heal.

4. Jerusalem shall be
Our great Redeemer's throne,
O'er all the earth and sea
His glory be made known;
Nations and kings Messiah greet,
And lay their honours at his feet.

5. Strike, strike the golden lyre,
And ye, his angels, sing;
Let joy your bosoms fire,
And heaven with glory ring;
From earth, and air, and sea, and skies,
Let the Redeemer's praise arise.
