Hark, ye mortals, list [hist] be still

Representative Text

1. Hark! ye mortals. Hist! be still,
Voices from Cumorah's hill
Break the silence of the tomb,
Penetrate the dreadful gloom,
Gently whisper, all is well!
Now's the day of Israel!
Gently whisper, all is well!
Now's the day of Israel!

2. Now the Gentile reign is o'er;
Darkness covers earth no more;
Now shall Zion rise and shine,
Fill the world with light divine:
Angels join- the tidings tell,
Now's the day of Israel!
Angels join- the tidings tell,
Now's the day of Israel!

3. Thrones shall totter, Babel fall,
Satan reign no more at all;
Saints shall gain the victory,
Truth prevail o'er land and sea,
Gentile tyrants sink to hell;
Now's the day of Israel!
Gentile tyrants sink to hell;
Now's the day of Israel!

4. Jesus soon will come again,
Saints with Him shall rise and reign,
Heav'n and earth in songs combine,
All the worlds in chorus join;
Ev'ry tongue the music swell,
Now's the day of Israel!
Ev'ry tongue the music swell,
Now's the day of Israel!
