384. Hark! through the courts of heaven

1 Hark! through the courts of heaven
Angelic voices sound:
He that was dead now lives again;
He that was lost is found.

2 God of unfailing grace,
Send down Thy Spirit now;
Oh, raise the lowly soul to hope,
And make the lofty bow.

3 In countries far from home,
On earthly husks who feed,
Back to their Father's house, O Lord,
Their wandering footsteps lead.

4 Then at each soul's return,
The heavenly harp shall sound;
He that was dead now lives gain;
He that was lost is found.

Amen.
