"Hail To The Lord's Anointed"

Here is a great version of the old hymn (1821), "Hail To The Lord's Anointed", which was an adaptation of the 72nd Psalm. The song is by a band called The Welcome Wagon who are actually a pastor and wife from New York.

Click on the play icon below to listen to the song.

I hope the truth in this song encourages you and reminds you that Jesus alone is our Strong Tower and Defender.

Here are the lyrics:

Hail to the Lord's Anointed,
great David's greater Son!
Hail in the time appointed,
his reign on earth begun!
He comes to break oppression,
to set the captive free;
to take away transgression,
and rule in equity.

He comes with succor speedy
to those who suffer wrong;
to help the poor and needy,
and bid the weak be strong;
to give them songs for sighing,
their darkness turn to light,
whose souls, condemned and dying,
are precious in his sight.

He shall come down like showers
upon the fruitful earth;
love, joy, and hope, like flowers,
spring in his path to birth.
Before him on the mountains,
shall peace, the herald, go,
and righteousness, in fountains,
from hill to valley flow.

To him shall prayer unceasing
and daily vows ascend;
his kingdom still increasing,
a kingdom without end.
The tide of time shall never
his covenant remove;
his name shall stand forever;
His name alone is love.

The Welcome Wagon - Hail To The Lord's Annointed
