Hymn #171: The people that in darkness

Change to large font

l. The people that in darkness pined
have seen a glorious light;
the people dwell in day, who dwelt
in death's surrounding night.

2. To hail your rise, O better Sun,
the gathering nations come,
rejoicing as when reapers bear
the harvest treasures home.

3. To us a Child of hope is born,
to us a Son is given,
and on his shoulders ever rests
all power in earth and heaven.

4. His name shall be the Prince of Peace,
forevermore adored,
the Wonderful, the Counsellor,
the great and mighty Lord.

5. His reign of righteous government
shall over all extend,
for peace and justice shall abound
in this world without end.
