I Hear in the Air

I hear in the air 'neath the canopy blue

Author: William Kuipers
Tune: [Wo findet die Seele die Heimat der Ruh']
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 I hear in the air, 'neath the canopy blue,
Sweet notes of a Name, most resplendent and true;
No Name that is sweeter, more blessed for men,
It heals all our wounds and restores us again.
Know ye, know ye, whose Name that is?
That Name is my Savior's, my hope and my bliss!

2 In truth our Redeemer this blest Name can bear,
Of Jesus, the Savior, a Name bright and fair;
So great was His love that He shed on the tree
His own precious life-blood to set His own free.
Know ye, know ye, our Savior-King,
Who left Father's mansions redemption to bring?

3 One day all creation shall bow to our Lord;
E'en now, 'mong the angels His Name is adored.
May we at his coming, with glorified throng,
Stand singing His praises in Heaven's great song:
"Jesus, Jesus, Savior adored,
Of all men and angels forever the Lord."
