Full Text

1 Hark! from the regions of darkest night.
Cries of a soul in an awful plight;
Pleading for mercy, no hope in sight,
Forever from paradise lost.

Forever from paradise lost!
Forever from paradise lost!
Lost! lost!
Forever from paradise lost!

2 Sinners, now tremble, our Lord is King,
Plenteous pardon he waits to bring;
Yet, if you hold to one sinful thing,
You’ll die and forever be lost. [Refrain]

3 Sad it will be if you miss the prize,
When it is waiting beyond the skies—
Offered so free ere man hopeless dies—
Forever from paradise lost! [Refrain]

4 List to the warning, immortal soul,
Soon will your death-knell in sadness troll;
Oh, the great anguish while ages roll!—
Forever from paradise lost! [Refrain]
