And art Thou come with us to dwell Our Prince our




And art Thou come with us to dwell,
Our Prince, our Guide, our Love, our Lord?
And is Thy Name Emmanuel,
God present with His world restored?


The heart is glad for Thee! It knows
None now shall bid it err or mourn;
And o’er its desert breaks the rose
In triumph o’er the grieving thorn.


Thou bringest all again; with Thee
Is light, is space, is breadth and room
For each thing fair, beloved, and free
To have its hour of life and bloom.


Each heart’s deep instinct unconfessed;
Each lowly wish, each daring claim;
All, all that life has long repressed
Unfolds, undreading blight and blame.


Thy reign eternal will not cease;
Thy years are sure, and glad, and slow;
Within thy mighty world of peace
The humblest flower has leave to blow.


The world is glad for Thee! the heart
Is glad for Thee! and all is well,
And fixed and sure, because Thou art,
Whose Name is called Emmanuel.


Then come to heal Thy people’s smart,
And with Thee bring Thy captive train;
Come, Saviour of the world and heart,
Come, mighty Victor over pain.


---Alternative verses---


The world is glad for Thee! The rude
Wild moor, the city’s crowded pen;
Each waste, each peopled solitude,
Becomes a home for happy men.
