Author: Thomas Kelly Hymnal: Hymns for the Living Church #172 (1974) Meter: 188.8.131.52.7.7 with alleluias Topics: Ascension and Reign 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.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Amen.
2 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--
O, 'tis sweet to sing of Him. (Refrain)
3 Jesus, hail! Thy glory brightns
All above and gives it worth;
Lor 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. (Refrain)
4 King of glory, reign forever!
Thine an everlasting crown.
Nothing from Thy love shall sever
Those who Thou hast made Thine own:
Happy objects of Thy grace,
Destined to behold Thy face. (Refrain)
5 Savior, hasten Thine appearing;
Bring, O bring the glorious day,
When, the awful summons hearing,
Heav'n and earth shall pass away.
Then, with golden harps, we'll sing,
"Glory, glory,to our King!" (Refrain)
