     1 The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. 2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. 3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. 4 And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. 5 O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.(KJV)

1. Arise, sons of the Kingdom! 
The King is drawing nigh; 
Arise and hail with gladness 
The Ruler from on high. 
Ye Christians, hasten forth! 
Your praise and homage bring Him 
And glad hosannas sing Him; 
Naught else your love is worth. 

2. Arise, ye drooping mourners! 
The King is very near; 
Away with grief and sorrow! 
For, lo, your Help is here. 
Behold, in many a place – 
Oh, blessed consolation! – 
You find Him, your Salvation, 
Within His means of grace. 

3. Arise, ye much afflicted! 
The King is not afar. 
Rejoice, ye long dejected, 
Behold the Morning Star! 
The Lord will give you joy; 
Though troubles now distress you, 
With comfort He will bless you, 
E’en death will He destroy. 

4. Arise, ye poor and needy! 
The King provides for you; 
He comes with succor speedy, 
With mercy ever new. 
Receive your gracious King, 
The Giver of all blessing, 
Hail Him, His name confessing, 
And glad hosannas sing. 

5. Be righteous, ye his subjects, 
The King is just and true; 
Prepare for Him a highway, 
Make all things straight and new. 
For, lo, He means it well; 
Then willing bear the crosses 
That He Himself imposes, 
Nor let your courage fail. 

6. Oh, rich the gifts Thou bringest, 
Thyself made poor and weak! 
O Love beyond expression, 
That thus can sinners seek! 
For this, O Lord, will we 
Our joyous tribute bring Thee 
And glad hosannas sing Thee 
And ever grateful be.
