Methodist Hymnal (1876)
1 TRUE and faithful Witness, thou
In righteousness hast sworn,
Every knee to thee shall bow,
And every heart shall turn;
Girt with equity and might,
Arise to administer thy grace,
Claim the kingdoms in thy right,
And govern all our race.

2 Visit us, bright morning Star,
And bring the perfect day!
Urged by faith's incessant prayer,
No longer, Lord, delay:
Now destroy the envious root;
The ground of nature's feuds remove;
Fill the earth with golden fruit,
With ripe, millennial love.
