Hymn Selection


HARK! ten thousand voices crying
"Lamb of God!" with one accord;
Thousand thousand saints replying
Wake at once the echoing chord.
Praise the Lamb! - the chorus waking,
All in heav'n together throng;
Loud and far, each tongue partaking,
Rolls around the endless song.
Grateful incense this, ascending
Ever to the Father's throne;
Every knee to Jesus bending,
All the mind in heav'n is one.
All the Father's counsels claiming
Equal honours to the Son;
All the Son's effulgence beaming
Makes the Father's glory known.
By the Spirit all pervading,
Hosts unnumbered round the Lamb,
Crowned with light and joy unfading,
Hail Him as the great "I AM."
Joyful now the wide creation,
Rests in undisturbed repose,
Blest in Jesus' full salvation,
Sorrow now nor throldom knows.
Hark! still louder swells the singing,
As the notes are heard again;
Through creation's vault is ringing
Joy's response, Amen! Amen!
