And with the faithful will remain
Till Jesus Christ descends.
 
6 We’ll praise him for a prophet’s voice,
His people’s steps to guide:
In this, we do and will rejoice,
Tho’ all the world deride.
 
7 Praise him, the time, the chosen time,
To favor Zion’s come:
And all the saints, from ev’ry clime,
Will soon be gather’d home.
 
8 The op’ning seals announce the day,
By prophets long declar’d;
When all, in one triumphant lay,
Will join to praise the Lord.
 
Hymn 71 • The glorious day is rolling on
HYMN 71. C. M.
 
1 The glorious day is rolling on—
All glory to the Lord!
When fair as at creation’s dawn
The earth will be restor’d.
 
2 A perfec[t] harvest then will crown
The renovated soil;
And rich abundance drop around,
Without corroding toil:
