Hymn 21. L. M.
1 The happy day has rolled on,
The glorious period now has come:
The angel sure has come again
To introduce Messiah’s reign.
2 The gospel trump again is heard,
The truth from darkness has appeared;
The lands which long in darkness lay,
Have now beheld a glorious day.
3 The day by prophets long foretold;
The day which Abram did behold;
The day that saints desired long,
When God his strange work would per-
4 The day when saints again should hear
The voice of Jesus in their ear,
And angels who above do reign,
Come down to converse hold with men.
