Lyrics
Verse 1
Hills of the north, rejoice; 
River and mountain spring, 
Hark to the advent voice; 
Valley and lowland, sing; 
Though absent long, your Lord is nigh; 
He judgement brings and victory. 
 
Verse 2
Isles of the southern seas, 
Deep in your coral caves 
Pent be each warring breeze, 
Lulled be your restless waves: 
He comes to reign with boundless sway, 
And makes your wastes his great highway. 
 
Verse 3
Lands of the East, awake, 
Soon shall your sons be free; 
The sleep of ages break, 
And rise to liberty. 
On your far hills, long cold and grey, 
Has dawned the everlasting day. 
 
Verse 4
Shores of the utmost West, 
Ye that have waited long, 
Unvisited, unblessed, 
Break forth to swelling song; 
High raise the note, that Jesus died, 
Yet lives and reigns, the Crucified. 
 
Verse 5
Shout, while ye journey home; 
songs be in every mouth; 
Lo, from the North we come, 
From East, and West, and South. 
City of God, the bond are free, 
We come to live and reign in thee!
