To call the righteous home,
And all that will not hear him,
Shall feel his chast’ning rod,
Till wickedness is ended,
As saith the Lord our God.
 
8 He comes, he comes in glory,
(The vail has vanish’d too,)
With angels, yea our fathers,
To drink this cup anew—
And sing the songs of Zion
And shout—’Tis done, ’tis done!
While every son and daughter
Rejoices—we are one.
 
Hymn 58 • ‘Twas on that dark, that solemn night
HYMN 58. L. M.
 
1 ’Twas on that dark, that solemn night,
When pow’rs of earth and hell arose,
Against the Son, e’en God’s delight,
And friends betray’d him to his foes:
 
2 Before the mournful scene began,
He took the bread, and bles’d, and brake—
What love through all his actions ran!
What wondrous words of grace he spake!
 
3 “This is my body broke for sin;
“Receive and eat the living food.” [p. 77]
