i HARK, the notes of angels singing

Glory, glory to the LAMB !"
All in heav'n their tribute bringing,

Raising high the SAVIOUR's Name.

2 Ye, for whom His life is given,

Sacred themes to you belong :
Come assist the choir of heav'n;

Join the everlasting song.

3 Saints and angels, thus united,

Songs imperfect still must raise: Though despis'd on earth, and slighted,

Jesus is above all praise.

4 See th' angelic hosts have crown'd Him!

Jesus fills the throne on high : Countless myriads, hov'ring round Him,

With His praises rend the sky,

5 Fill'd with holy emulation,

Let us vie with those above: Sweet the theme-a free salvation !

Fruit of everlasting love.

6 Endless life in Him possessing,

Let us praise His precious Name : Glory, honour, pow'r, and blessing,

Be for ever to the LAMB.

With angels round the throne;
Ten thousand thousand are their tongues;

But all their joys are one.

From the pow'r of sin and death.

Feel, and own Thy heav'nly sway.

Dispel corruption's mournful gloom,

And cheer our op'ning eyes. 2 Our drooping faith inspire,

Our doubts and fears remove,
And kindle in our hearts the fire

Of never-dying love.

To sanctify the soul,
To pour fresh life on ev'ry part,

And new-create the whole.

Sweet Guest! that we may know and love
The FATHER, Son, and Thee.

And touch our lips with hallow'd fire: Our God, from all eternity,

Whose presence fills both earth and heav'n, The meaning of the written Word

Is by Thy inspiration givn: Thou only dost Thyself explain The secret mind of God to man.
