Hark! the Sound of Holy Voices

Author: Christopher Wordsworth, 1807-1885 Meter: D Appears in 205 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Hark! the sound of holy voices, Chanting at the crystal sea, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Lord, to Thee. Multitudes, which none can number Like the stars in glory stand, Clothed in white apparel, holding Palms of vict'ry in their hand. 2 Patriarch and holy prophet, Who prepared the way of Christ, King, apostle, saint, confessor, Martyr, and evangelist, Saintly maiden, godly matron, Widows who have watched to payer, Joined in holy concert, singing To the Lord of all, are there. 3 They have come from tribulation, And have washed their robes in blood, Washed them in the blood of Jesus; Tried they were, and firm they stood. Mocked, imprisoned, stoned, tormented, Sawn asunder, slain with sword, They have conquered death and Satan By the might of Christ the Lord. 4 Marching with Thy Cross, their banner, They have triumphed, following Thee, the Captain of salvation, Thee, their Savior and their King. Gladly, Lord, with Thee they suffered, Gladly, Lord, with Thee they died, And by death to life immortal They were born and glorified. 5 Now they reign in heavenly glory, Now they walk in golden light, Now they drink, as from a river, Holy bliss and infinite. Love and peace they taste forever And all truth and knowledge see In the beatific vision Of the blessed Trinity. 6 God of God, the One-begotten Light of Light, Emmanuel, In whose body, joined together, All the saints forever dwell. Pour upon us of Thy fulness That we may forevermore God the Father, God the Spirit, One with Thee on high, adore. Amen.

The Man Is Ever Blest

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 112 hymnals Lyrics: 1 The man is ever blessed Who shuns the sinners’ ways, Among their councils never stands, Nor takes the scorners’ place, 2 But makes the Law of God His study and delight Amid the labors of the day, And watches of the night. 3 He like a tree shall thrive, With waters near the root; Fresh as the leaf his name shall live; His works are heav’nly fruit. 4 Not so th’ungodly race, They no such blessings find; Their hopes shall flee like empty chaff Before the driving wind. 5 How will they bear to stand Before that judgment seat Where all the saints, at Christ’s right hand, In full assembly meet? 6 He knows, and He approves The way the righteous go; But sinners and their works shall meet A dreadful overthrow.

The Saints on Earth and Those Above

Author: Charles Wesley; Isaac Watts Appears in 75 hymnals Lyrics: 1 The saints on earth and those above But one communion make; Joined to their Lord in bonds of love, All of His grace partake. 2 One family, we dwell in Him, One Church above, beneath; Tho' now divided by the stream, The narrow stream of death. 3 One army of the living God, To His command we bow; Part of the host have crossed the flood, And part are crossing now. 4 Lo! thousands to their endless home Are swiftly borne away; And we are to the margin come And soon must launch as they. 5 Lord Jesus, be our constant Guide; Then, when the word is given, Bid death’s flood its waves divide And land us safe in heaven. Amen. Topics: The Church Communion of Saints Scripture: Hebrews 12:22-24 Used With Tune: ST. FLAVIAN

The Son of God Goes Forth to War

Author: Reginald Heber Meter: D Appears in 707 hymnals Lyrics: 1 The Son of God goes forth to war A kingly crown to gain. His blood-red banner streams afar; Who follows in His train? Who best can drink His cup of woe, Triumphant over pain, Who patient bears his cross below,-- He follows in His train. 2 The martyr first whose eagle eye Could pierce beyond the grave, Who saw his Master in the sky And called on Him to save. Like Him, with pardon on His tongue, In midst of mortal pain, He prayed for them that did the wrong,-- Who follows in his train? 3 A glorious band, the chosen few, On whom the Spirit came, Twelve valiant saints; their hope they knew And mocked the cross and flame. They met the tyrant's brandished steel, The lion's gory mane; They bowed their necks the death to feel,-- Who follows in their train? 4 A noble army, men and boys, The matron and the maid, Around the Savior's throne rejoice, In robes of light arrayed. They climbed the steep ascent of heav'n Thro' peril, toil, and pain. O God, to us may grace be giv'n To follow in their train! Amen.
