Hymn/Song Information

Thou wilt arise and mercy thou to Zion




Thou wilt arise, and mercy thou
to Zion wilt extend;
The time of mercy, now the time
foreset is come to end.


For in the very stones thereof
thy servants do delight,
And on the dust thereof they have
compassion in their sight.


Then shall the heathen people fear
the Lord's most holy Name,
And all the kings on earth shall dread
his glory and his fame.


Then when the Lord the mighty God
again shall Zion rear,
And then when he most nobly in
his glory shall appear;


To pray'r of the poor destitute
when he himself shall bend,
When he shall not disdain unto
their suits for to attend:


This shall be written for the age
that after shall succeed;
The people that are yet unborn
the Lord's renown shall spread.


From his high sanctuary he
hath look-ed down below,
And out of heav'n most high he hath
beheld the earth also:


That of the mourning captive he
might hear the woeful cry,
And that he might deliver those
that were condemned to die.


That they in Zion may declare
the Lord's most holy Name,
And in Jerusalem set forth
the praises of the same;


Then when the people of the land
and kingdoms with accord,
Shall be assembled to perform
their service to the Lord.
