As doves to their windows in flocks see them  come,
While empires shall tremble and kingdoms  shall rend,
And thrones be cast down as wise Daniel pro claim’d.
 
7 And Israel shall flourish and spread far  abroad,
Till earth shall be full of the knowledge of  God:
And thus shall the stone of the mountain roll  forth—
Extend its dominion, and fill the whole earth.
 
Hymn 81 • Let thy kingdom, blessed Savior
HYMN 81. P. M.
 
1 Let thy kingdom, blessed Savior,
Come and bid our troubles cease;
Come, oh come! and reign forever,
God of love and prince of peace;
Visit now poor bleeding Zion,
Hear thy people mourn and weep;
Day and night thy lambs are crying,
Come, good Shepherd, feed thy sheep.
 
2 Some for Paul, some for Apollos,
Some for Cephas—none agree:
Jesus let us hear thee call us; [p. 109]
As doves to their windows in flocks see them come,
While empires shall tremble and kingdoms shall rend,
And thrones be cast down as wise Daniel proclaim’d.
 
7 And Israel shall flourish and spread far abroad,
Till earth shall be full of the knowledge of God:
And thus shall the stone of the mountain roll forth—
Extend its dominion, and fill the whole earth.
