Hymns and Anthems.
Hark! the glad sound! the Saviour comes,
The Saviour promis'd long;
And ev'ry voice a song.
In Satan's bondage held;
The iron fetters yield.
He comes from thickest films of sin
To clear the mental ray;
To pour celestial day.
He comes to bind the broken heart,
To make the wounded whole,
And bless the humble soul.
Our glad hosannas, Prince of Peace !
Thine Advent shall proclaim ;
The glories of Thy name.
ADVENT HYMN. Lo! He comes, with clouds descending,
Once for favour'd sinners slain; Thousand thousand saints attending, Swell the triumph of His train :
Ev'ry eye shall now behold Him,
Rob'd in dreadful majesty;
Pierc'd and nail'd Him to the tree,
Blest redemption, long expected !
See, His solemn pomp to share, All His saints, by man rejected,
Rise to meet Him in the air : Hallelujah! see the Son of God appears !
Yea, Amen! Let all adore Thee,
High on Thine eternal throne; Saviour, take Thy power and glory, Claim the kingdoms for Thine own:
Come, Thou long expected Jesus,
Born to set Thy people free; From our sins and fears release us,
Let us find our rest in Thee.
Israel's strength and consolation,
Hope of all the earth Thou art; Bless'd desire of ev'ry nation,
Joy of ev'ry faithful heart.
Born Thy people to deliver ;
Born a child and yet a King ; Born to reign o'er us for ever,
Now Thy gracious kingdom bring.
By Thine own Eternal Spirit,
Rule in all our hearts alone; By Thine all-sufficient merit,
Raise us to Thy glorious throne.
