Hark, the Glad Sound

Representative Text

1 Hark, the glad sound! The Savior comes,

in Satan’s bondage held;
the gates of brass before Him burst,

3 He comes the broken heart to bind,
the bleeding soul to cure,
and with the treasures of His grace
t'enrich the humbled poor.

4 Our glad Hosannas, Prince of Peace,
Thy welcome shall proclaim;
and heav'n’s eternal arches ring
with Thy beloved Name.
