Hymn 184
1. Earth is the place where Christ will reign
With all his saints a thousand years, -
He'll end their sorrow and their pains,
Dismiss their woes, and dry their tears.

2. He'll burst the prison of their tombs,
And bring their sleeping dust to light;
He'll clothe them with immortal bloom,
Arrayed in garments clear and white.

3. He'll cleanse the earth from wicked men,
And bind Old Satan with a chain;
He'll raise the meek and humble then,
To thrones of power, and bid them reign.

4. Hosanna to the Son of God,
Who soon will come to earth again,
To smite the wicked with his rod,
And o'er the earth exalted reign.
