174 - Come, Lord, and Tarry Not
Come, Lord, and tarry not;
Bring the longlookedfor day;
O why these years of waiting here?
O why this long delay?
Come, for creation groans,
Impatient of Thy stay;
Worn out by these long years of ill,
These ages of delay.
Come, for the corn is ripe!
Put in Thy sickle now;
Reap the great harvest of the earth;
Sower and reaper Thou.
Come, spoil the strong man's house,
Bind him and cast him hence;
Show Thyself stronger than the strong,
Come, and begin Thy reign
Of everlasting peace;
Come, take the kingdom to Thyself,
Great King of righteousness.
