Lyrics
Verse 1
Hail to the Lord's Anointed, 
great David's greater Son! 
Hail in the time appointed, 
his reign on earth begun! 
He comes to break oppression, 
to set the captive free; 
to take away transgression, 
and rule in equity. 
 
Verse 2
He comes with succour speedy 
to those who suffer wrong; 
to help the poor and needy, 
and bid the weak be strong; 
to give them songs for sighing, 
their darkness turn to light, 
whose souls, condemned and dying, 
are precious in his sight. 
 
Verse 3
He shall come down like showers 
upon the fruitful earth; 
love, joy, and hope, like flowers, 
spring in his path to birth. 
Before him on the mountains, 
shall peace, the herald, go, 
and righteousness, in fountains, 
from hill to valley flow. 
 
Verse 4
To him shall prayer unceasing 
and daily vows ascend; 
his kingdom still increasing, 
a kingdom without end. 
The tide of time shall never 
his covenant remove; 
his name shall stand forever; 
that name to us is love.
