Epiphany (6)

The People that in Darkness Sat

A glorious light have seen;
The light has shined on them who long
In shades of death have been,
In shades of death have been.

To hail you, Sun of Righteous,
The gathering nations come;
They joy as when the reapers bear
Their harvest treasures home,
Their harvest treasures home.

To us the Child of hope is born,
To us the Son is given,
And on his shoulder ever rests
All power in earth and heaven,
All power in earth and heaven.

His name shall be the Prince of Peace,
The Everlasting Lord,
The Wonderful, the Counselor,
The God by all adored,
The God by all adored.

His righteous government and power
Shall over all extend;
On judgment and on justice based,
His reign shall have no end,
His reign shall have no end.

Lord Jesus, reign is us, we pray,
And make us yours alone,
Who with the Father ever are
And Holy spirit, one,
And Holy spirit, one.
