On whom for a blessing we call,
Our shadow by day and our pillar by night,
Our King, our Deliv’rer, our all!

We know He is coming to gather His sheep,
And lead them in Zion, in love.
For why in the valley of death should they weep,
Or in the lone wilderness rove?

How long we have wandered as strangers in sin
And cried in the desert for Thee!
Our foes have rejoiced when our sorrows they've seen,
But Israel will shortly be free.

As children of Zion, good tidings for us.
The tokens already appear;
Fear not, and be just, for the kingdom is ours.
The hour of redemption is near.

Restore, my dear Savior, the light of Thy face;
Thy soul cheering comfort impart
And let the sweet longing for Thy holy place
Bring hope to my desolate heart.

He looks and ten thousands of angels rejoice,
And myriads wait for His word;
He speaks and eternity filled with His voice
echoes the praise of the Lord.

Redemption is near. He’ll gather His sheep.
The kingdom is ours. We’ll shortly be free.
