Promised Day 409

Tune: L. M. Raiford, 1859
Alto: Wilson Marion Cooper, 1902
Lyrics: Isaac Watts, 1707
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
How long, dear Savior, O how long,
Shall this bright hour delay?
Fly swifter round, ye wheels of time,
And bring the promised day.

Attending angels shout for joy,
And the bright armies sing,
Mortals, behold the sacred seat
Of our descending King!
