|Text:||Hark! A Voice Divides the Sky|
|Composer:||Marcus Morris Wells|
1. Hark! A voice divides the sky,
happy are the faithful dead!
In the Lord who sweetly die,
they from all their toils are freed;
Them the Spirit hath declared
blessed, unutterably blessed;
Jesus is their great reward,
Jesus is their endless rest.
2. Followed by their works, they go
where their Head has gone before;
Reconciled by grace below,
grace has opened mercy’s door;
Justified through faith alone,
here they knew their sins forgiv’n,
Here they laid their burden down,
hallowed, and made fit for Heav’n.
3. Who can now lament the lot
of a saint in Christ deceased?
Let the world, who know us not,
call us hopeless and unblessed:
When from flesh the spirit freed
hastens homeward to return,
Mortals cry, A man is dead!
Angels sing, A child is born!
4. Born into the world above,
they our happy brother greet,
Bear him to the throne of love,
place him at the Savior’s feet;
Jesus smiles, and says, Well done,
good and faithful servant thou;
Enter, and receive thy crown,
reign with Me triumphant now.
5. Angels catch th’approving sound,
bow, and bless the just award;
Hail the heir with glory crowned,
now rejoicing with his Lord:
Fuller joys ordained to know,
waiting for the general doom,
When th’archangel’s trump shall blow,
Rise, ye dead, to judgment come!
