Jerusalem, Lift Up Thy Voice ~ Advent

Jerusalem, Lift Up Thy Voice

Jerusalem, lift up thy voice!
Daughter of Zion, now rejoice!
Thy King is come, whose mighty hand
Henceforth shall reign o’er every land.

He comes to every tribe and race,
A Messenger of truth and grace:
With peace He comes from Heaven above
On earth to found His realm of love.

In God’s eternal covenant,
He comes for our salvation sent.
The star of hope moves on before,
And hosts assemble to adore.

Let all the world with one accord
Now hail the coming of the Lord:
Praise to the Prince of heavenly birth
Who bringeth peace to all the earth.

Words: Johan O, Wallin, 1814, trans­lat­ed from Swed­ish to Eng­lish by Ernst W. Olsen (1870-l958)

  1. What a beautiful hymn. And I like your photo too.

    Ellen, can you please send me an email – I’ve got a question for you. (I tried to email you but perhaps it’s the wrong address…)

    Thanks!

  2. “Let all the world with one accord, now hail the coming of the Lord.” Won’t it be wonderful when that happens!

    Happy Anniversary, Ellen and Ellen’s Dear!
