Echo Song

Representative Text

1 O hark and hear the song,
The echoes sweet prolong,
With clear and tender thrill,
It echoes, echoes still.
Its music wondrous sweet,
When voice and echoes meet,
To praise our risen Lord,
The glories of His Word.

Jesus hear! ever dear Saviour above,
Jesus hear, ever dear Saviour above,
Loving, meek this we seek Heav'n and thy love,
Loving, meek this we seek Heav'n and thy love.
With prayer and with song,
Would we seek thy dear throne,
That the love of our Lord,
For our sins may atone,
That the love of our Lord,
For our sins may atone.

2 To Christ our gracious King,
We would some tribute bring,
And He in love divine,
Accepts the grateful sign.
And with the light of heaven,
The Day-star God has given,
He fills our happy hearts,
With joy that ne'er departs. [Chorus]

3 Behold Him as he stands
With tender loving hands,
Divine in word and deed,
He grants His children's need.
The Father's well loved Son,
The long, long suffering one,
Who gives to all our guile,
Forgiveness' holy smile. [Chorus]

4 Then come, repeat your vows,
Give him allegiance now;
To Him the anthem rolls,
Great Shepherd of our souls.
By anguish sorely tried,
By sinners crucified,
But now our Lord, our King,
To Him most worthy sing. [Chorus]
