Hymn/Song Information

Lift up thine eyes O watchman The armies




Lift up thine eyes, O watchman,
The armies of the Lord
Are riding forth to conquest
With buckler, shield and sword;
Glad tidings unto Zion
That valiant host shall bring,
And shout aloud, Hosanna!
The Lord, the Lord is King.


What dost thou see, O watchman?
What dost thou see afar?
“The gleaming of a banner,
The rising of a Star;”
Then cry aloud, O watchman,
With trumpet-voice proclaim
To all a full salvation,
Through Christ the Saviour’s name.


That radiant banner gleaming,
That Star divinely bright,
Shall bear to ev’ry nation
The blessed Gospel light:
All kingdoms, crowns, and sceptres,
Before the Cross shall fall,
And Christ shall reign triumphant,
The King and Lord of all.
