The Race That Long in Darkness Pined Lyrics
1 The people who in darkness walked
have seen a glorious light;
the heav’nly dawn broke forth on those
who dwelt in death and night,
who dwelt in death and night.
2 To us a child of hope is born,
to us a son is giv’n,
and on his shoulders ever rests
all pow’r in earth and heav’n,
all pow’r in earth and heav’n.
3 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.
4 His righteous government and pow’r
shall over all extend;
on judgment and on justice based,
his reign shall have no end,
his reign shall have no end.
5 Lord Jesus, reign in us, we pray,
and make us yours alone,
for you are with the Father and
the Spirit ever one,
the Spirit ever one.
