Peace! earth’s last battle has been won - The kingdom
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

The Kingdom.

1. Peace! earth's last battle has been won:
  its days of conflict now are o'er;
the Prince of peace ascends the throne,
  and war has ceased from shore to shore.

2. Rest! the world's day of toil is past:
  each storm is hushed above, below;
creation's joy has come at last,
  after six thousand years of woe.

3 Messiah reigns! earth's king has come;
  its diadems are on his brow,
its rebel kingdoms have become
  his everlasting kingdom now.

4. This earth again is paradise;
  the desert blossoms as the rose;
clothed in its robes of bridal bliss,
  creation has forgot its woes.

5 O, long-expected, absent long,
  star of creation's troubled gloom!
Let heaven and earth break forth in song,
  Messiah! Saviour! art thou come?

6 For thou hast bought us with thy blood,
  and thou wast slain to set us free;
thou mad'st us kings and priests to God,
  and we shall reign on earth with thee!
