  He Hath Put All Things Under His Feet  

 

O North, with all thy vales of green!
    O South, with all thy palms!
From peopled towns and fields between
    Uplift the voice of psalms;
Raise, ancient East, the anthem high,
And let the youthful West reply.

Lo! in the clouds of heaven appears
    God's well-beloved Son;
He brings a train of brighter years:
    His kingdom is begun.
He comes, a guilty world to bless
With mercy, truth, and righteousness.

Oh, Father! haste the promised hour
    When, at His feet, shall lie
All rule, authority, and power,
    Beneath the ample sky;
When He shall reign from pole to pole,
The lord of every human soul;

When all shall heed the words He said
    Amid their daily cares,
And, by the loving life He led,
    Shall seek to pattern theirs;
And He, who conquered Death, shall win
The nobler conquest over Sin.

       - William Cullen Bryant
