A Poor Brother's Hymnal
Thursday, March 02, 2006
  Hark, a Thrilling Voice Is Sounding
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,
Let the earthbound soul arise;
Christ, her Sun, all ill dispelling,
Shines upon the morning skies.

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,
And the world is wrapped in fear,
With His mercy He may shield us,
And with words of love draw near.

5. Honor, glory, might, and blessing
Be to God: the Father, Son
And the everlasting Spirit,
While eternal ages run.
