HYMN 107 D

1.  HARK, creation's Alleluia

     Rising from a thousand shores

     Vibrates sweet as angel voices

     Loud as many waters, roars

     Blessing, glory, power, salvation

     To our God upon the throne

     Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

     lnfinite supreme, alone.

2.  On and on, from dawn to sunset

     Bome on every changeful wind

     From the myriad-minded people

     Of the hoary climes of Ind,

     From the ransom‘d sons of Afric

     From Old Sinim's crowded lands

     From the freeborn Wanderers roaming

     Arab‘s unconquer‘d sands.

3.  From the coasts of ice to regions

     Where perpetual summer smiles

     From the sunny-hearted children

     Of the far Pacific isles

     From the numbers without number

     Of rejoicing Christendom

     From the watchers for His advent

     Who will soon to Zion come.

4.  Gathering strength from every nation

     Every kindred, tribe, and tongue

     Hark, the everlasting anthem

     Hark, that glorious tide of song

     Floods the valley with its music

     Echoes from the lasting hills

     Onward, upward, till the temple

     Of the living God it fills.

5.  Hark, it mingles with the raptures

     Of the armies of the sky

     Who have pass’d through tribulation

     Into perfect rest on high

     Clothes in robes of spotless beauty

     Palms of triumph in their hand

     Harping on their harps Hosanna

     As before His face they stand.

6.  Glory unto Him who loved us

     Him who wash'd us with His blood

     Kings and priest henceforth for ever

     To our Father and our God

     Alleluia! saints and angels

     Raise your loudest loftiest strains

     Alleluia! hell is vanguished:

     God the Lord Almighty reign.  Amen
