Messiah, at thy glad approach
(Michael Bruce/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Messiah, at thy glad approach.

1. Messiah, at thy glad approach
  the howling winds are still;
thy praises fill the lonely waste,
  and breathe from every hill. PDF - Midi

2. The hidden fountains at thy call
  their sacred stores unlock;
loud in the desert, sudden streams
  burst living from the rock.

3. The incense of the springs ascends
  upon the morning gale;
red o'er the hill the roses bloom,
  the lilies in the vale.

4. Renewed, the earth a robe of light,
  a robe of beauty wears;
and in new heavens a brighter sun
  leads on the promised years.

5. The kingdom of Messiah come,
  appointed times disclose;
and fairer in Emmanuel's land
  the new creation glows.

6. Let Israel to the Prince of Peace
  the loud hosanna sing!
With hallelujahs and with hymns
  O Zion, hail thy King!

Michael Bruce, in: Philip Schaff: Christ in Song, 1870, 20-21.
