w Thy Kingdom come? 191
"THY KINGDOM COME.''
Lord ! come away! Why dost Thou stay ? Thy road is ready ; and Thy paths made straight
With longing expectation wait The consecration of Thy beauteous feet! Ride on triumphantly ! Behold, we lay Our lusts and proud wills in Thy way !
Hosanna! Welcome, to our hearts ! Lord, here Thou hast a temple too ; and full as dear As that of Sion, and as full of sin : Nothing but thieves and robbers dwell therein : Enter, and chase them forth, and cleanse the floor! Crucify them, that they may never more Profane that holy place Where Thou hast chose to set Thy face I And then, if our stiff tongues shall be Mute in the praises of Thy Deity, The stones out of the temple wall Shall cry aloud, and call Hosanna ! and Thy glorious footsteps greet! Amen !
Bishop Jeremy Taylor. 1655.
Jesus, Thy Church with longing eyes For Thy expected coming waits ;
When will the promised light arise, And glory beam from Zion's gates ?
