Hail to the Lord's anointed, great David's greater Son
Hail in the time appointed, His reign on earth begun
He comes to break oppression, to set the captive free
To take away transgression and rule in equity.

He comes in succor speedy to those who suffer wrong
To help the poor and needy, and bid the weak be strong
To give them songs for sighing, their darkness turn to light
Whose souls, condemned and dying, were precious in His sight.

By such shall He be feared while sun and moon endure
Beloved, obeyed, revered; for He shall judge the poor
Through changing generations, with justice, mercy, truth
While stars maintain their stations, or moons renew their youth.

He shall come down like showers upon the fruitful earth
Love, joy, and hope, like flowers, spring in His path to birth
Before Him, on the mountains, shall peace, the herald, go
And righteousness, in fountains, from hill to valley flow.

Arabia's desert ranger to Him shall bow the knee
The Ethiopian stranger His glory come to see
With offerings of devotion ships from the isles shall meet
To pour the wealth of oceans in tribute at His feet.

Kings shall fall down before Him, and gold and incense bring
All nations shall adore Him, His praise all people sing
For He shall have dominion over river, sea and shore
Far as the eagle's pinion or dove's light wing can soar.

For Him shall prayer unceasing and daily vows ascend
His kingdom still increasing, a kingdom without end
The mountain dews shall nourish a seed in weakness sown
Whose fruit shall spread and flourish and shake like Lebanon.

Over every foe victorious, He on His throne shall rest
From age to age more glorious, all blessing and all blest
The tide of time shall never His covenant remove
His Name shall stand forever, His Name to us is Love.

The lyrics to "Hail To The Lord's Anointed" is by James Montgomery.
