ARK, the glad sound! the Saviour comes,
prepare a throne,
In Satan’s bondage held ;
The iron fetters yield.
The bleeding soul to cure,
To bless the humble poor.
Thy welcome shall proclaim,
With Thy beloved Name.
Born to set Thy people free,
Let us find our rest in Thee.
Hope of all the earth Thou art ;
Joy of every longing heart !
2 Born Thy people to deliver,
Born å Ĉhild, and yet a King ;
Now Thy promised kingdom bring.
Rule in all our hearts alone;
Raise us to Thy glorious throne.
Hosanna to the incarnate Word !
Let earth, let heaven, Hosanna sing ! 2 O Saviour! with protecting care,
Return to this Thy house of prayer,
Where we Thy parting promise claim ! 3 But chiefest, in our cleansed breast,
Bid Thine eternal Spirit rest,
A temple pure, and worthy Thee! 4 So, in the last and dreadful day,
When earth and heaven shall melt away,
Shall swell the sound of praise again. 22
IGHT of those whose dreary dwelling
Borders on the shades of death,
Dissipate the clouds beneath!
Thou of life and light Creator !
In our deepest darkness rise ;
Pouring daylight on our eyes.
Life and joy Thy beams impart,
Every meek and contrite heart.
Thou hast for our ransomed race;
Manifest Thy heavenly grace!
0 Thou Prince of Peace and Love,
Raise our hearts to things above !
Every burdened soul release ;
Guide us to Thy perfect peace.
Nor longer may Thy grace endure,
And preach Thy gospel to the poor? 2 Come, Jesus, come ! return again ;
With brighter beam Thy servants bless,
3 A feeble race, by passion driven,
In darkness and in doubt we roam,
Our hope, our harbour, and our home. 4 Come, Jesus, come ! and as of yore
The prophet went to clear Thy way,
A dawning to Thy brighter day;
Our stony hearts for truth prepare ;
Then come and reap Thy harvest there!
Thousand thousand saints attending,
Jesus shall for ever reign.
Robed in dreadful majesty ;
Shall the true Messiah see. 3 Now redemption, long expected,
See in solemn pomp appear !
4 Yea, Amen ! let all adore Thee,
High on Thine eternal throne !
O come quickly!
7s. 1 ARK ! the herald angels sing
Glory to the new-born King !
“ Christ is born in Bethlehem."
Christ, the everlasting Lord,
Jesus, our Immanuel !
Hail the Sun of Righteousness !
