8.7.8.7.8.7.8.7.


1
HARK, the solemn strains uprising!
Sweetly swells the note of praise,
From the chamber where the Saviour
Leads His own the voice to raise.
On the night of His rejection
All is darkness, deep'ning gloom,
As the Son of man goes onward
To the cross, to death and tomb.
2
Hark, the gentle strains uprising:
Softly swells the note of praise;
All His anguish we remember
As to Him the voice we raise.
All our guilt was laid upon Him -
On God's own belovèd Son;
All the waves and billows pouring
O'er His head, He cried, 'Tis done!
3
Hark, the gladsome song uprising;
Louder swells the note of praise;
Lord, we hail Thee as the Victor
While to Thee the voice we raise.
Thou whom men cast out, rejected.
Sittest crowned upon God's throne;
Yea, Amen! Thou, Lord, art worthy!
This we gladly, fully own.

J. Revell (d. 1900)
