Hark! Ten Thousand Harps and Voices

Author: Thomas Kelly Meter: 8.7.8.7.7.7 Appears in 627 hymnals Scripture: Hebrews 1:6 Lyrics: 1 Hark! ten thousand harps and voices Sound the note of praise above; Jesus reigns, and heav'n rejoices-- Jesus reigns, the God of Love. See, He sits on yonder throne; Jesus rules the world alone. 2 Come, ye saints, unite your praises With the angels round His throne; Soon, we hope, our God will raise us To the place where He is gone. Meet it is that we should sing, "Glory, glory, to our King!" 3 Sing how Jesus came from heaven, How He bore the cross below, How all pow'r to Him is given, How He reigns in glory now; ’Tis a great and endless theme, Oh, ’tis sweet to sing of Him! 4 Jesus, hail! Thy glory brightens All above and gives it worth; Lord of Life, Thy smile enlightens, Cheers, and charms Thy saints on earth. When we think of love like Thine, Lord, we own it love divine. 5 King of Glory, reign forever; Thine an everlasting crown. Nothing from Thy love shall sever Those whom Thou hast made Thine own, Happy objects of Thy grace, Destined to behold Thy face. 6 Savior, hasten Thine appearing; Bring, oh, bring the glorious day When, the awe-full summons hearing, Heaven and earth shall pass away; Then with golden harps we'll sing, "Glory, glory, to our King!" Amen. Topics: The Church Year Ascension Used With Tune: NEANDER

It Came Upon the Midnight Clear

Author: Edmund Hamilton Sears Meter: 8.6.8.6 D Appears in 781 hymnals Scripture: Hebrews 1:6 Lyrics: 1 It came upon the midnight clear, that glorious song of old, from angels bending near the earth, to touch their harps of gold: “Peace on the earth, good will to all, from heaven’s all-gracious King”: the world in solemn stillness lay, to hear the angels sing. 2 Still through the cloven skies they come, with peaceful wings unfurled, and still their heavenly music floats o’er all the weary world: above its sad and lowly plains they bend on hovering wing, and ever o’er its Babel sounds the blessed angels sing. 3 Yet with the woes of sin and strife the world has suffered long; beneath the heavenly hymn have rolled two thousand years of wrong; and we at war on earth hear not the tidings that they bring; O, hush the noise and cease the strife to hear the angels sing! 4 And you, beneath life’s crushing load, whose forms are bending low, who toil along the climbing way with painful steps and slow, look now, for glad and golden hours come swiftly on the wing: O, rest beside the weary road, and hear the angels sing. 5 For lo, the days are hastening on, by prophets seen of old, when with the ever-circling years shall come the time foretold, when peace shall over all the earth its ancient splendors fling, and the whole world give back the song which now the angels sing.
