Hymn: The happy day has rolled on

The happy day has rolled on
The glorious period now has come
The angel sure has come again
To introduce Messiah’s reign
 
The gospel trump again is heard
The truth from darkness has appeared
The lands which long in darkness lay
Have now beheld a glorious day
 
The day by prophets long foretold
The day which Abra’m did behold
The day that saints desired long
When God his strange work would perform
 
The day when saints again should hear
The voice of Jesus in their ear
And angels who above do reign
Come down to converse hold with men [p. [179]]
