8136. Strike The Harp Of Zion

1 Strike the harp of Zion, wake the tuneful lay;
Bear the joyful tidings far away;
Lo! the morn is breaking, morn of purest love,
Praise forever, praise to God above.

Refrain:
Glory! glory! hark! the angels sing,
Glory! glory! hear the echo ring!
Strike the harp of Zion, wake the tuneful lay;
Bear the joyful tidings far away, far away,
Bear the joyful tidings far away.

2 Over distant regions veiled in error’s night;
See the holy dawn of Gospel light;
See! the nations coming at the Savior’s call,
Coming now to crown Him Lord of all. [Refrain]

3 O, the joyful story, life to every soul!
Like a mighty ocean let it roll,
Bringing home the lost ones from the path of sin,
Till the world shall all be gathered in. [Refrain]
