4 Brightly dawned the Advent

Earth shall yield her treasures,
Of the new-born King,

And her dead, the sea.
Joyously the watchers

Till the trumpet soundeth,
Heard the angels sing.

'Mid eternal light, Sadly closed the evening

Reign, Thou King immortal,
Of His hallowed life,

Holy, infinite.
As the noontide darkness
Veiled the last dread strife.

6 Jesus! Lord and Master,
Lo! again in glory,

Prophet, Priest and King,
'Mid eternal light,

To Thy feet, triumphant,
Reigns the King immortal,

Hallowed praise we bring.
Holy, infinite.

Thine the pain and weeping,

Thine the victory; 5 Lo! again He cometh,

Power, and praise, and honor,
Robed in clouds of light,

Be, O Lord, to Thee.
As the Judge eternal,

High in regal glory,
Armed with power and might.

'Mid eternal light,
Nations to His footstool

Reign, O King immortal, Gathered then shall be;

Holy, infinite. Amen.

JOHN JULIAN

Reign all around us, and within; Let sin no more our souls enthrall,

4 Oh, quickly come, sure Light of all,

For gloomy night broods o'er our way; And fainting souls begin to fall

With weary watching for the day: Come, quickly come: for round Thy

For death is mighty all around; On every home his shadows fall,

2 See that your lamps are burning,

Replenish them with oil;
Look now for your salvation,

O Jesus, now appear;
Arise, Thou Sun so longed-for,

O'er this benighted sphere.
With hearts and hands uplifted,

We plead, O Lord, to see
The day of earth's redemption,

And ever be with Thee! Amen.
