HYMNS AND ANTHEMS,
IN USE AT
ALL SAINTS CHURCH, FITTLETON.
HOPE & CO., 16, GREAT MARLBOROUGH STREET,
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;
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.
