1 Soon may the last glad song arise
Through all the millions of the skies;
That song of triumph which records
That all the earth is now the Lord's.
2 Let thrones and powers and kingdoms be
Obedient, mighty God, to Thee;
And over land and streams and main
Wave Thou the sceptre of Thy reign.
3 O that the anthem now might swell,
And host to host the triumph tell,
That not one rebel heart remains;
But over all the Saviour reigns!
