Hark, a Thrilling Voice is Sounding
translated by Edward Caswall, 1849, from a 5th Century Latin text
|Hark, a thrilling voice is sounding!|
Christ is nigh! we hear it say;
Cast away the works of darkness,
O ye children of the day!
2. Startled by the solemn warning,
|3. Lo, the Lamb, so long expected,|
Comes with pardon down from heaven;
Let us haste, with tears of sorrow,
One and all to be forgiven.
4. So when next He comes in glory,
|5. Honor, glory, might, and blessing|
Be to God: the Father, Son
And the everlasting Spirit,
While eternal ages run.
