CHRIST'S MISSION




Hark the glad sound! The Saviour comes,
The Saviour promised long;
Let every heart prepare a throne,
And every voice a song.


On Him the Spirit, largely poured,
Exerts His sacred fire;
Wisdom and might, and zeal and love,
His holy breast inspire.


He comes the prisoners to release,
In Satanís bondage held;
The gates of brass before Him burst,
The iron fetters yield.


He comes from thickest films of vice
To clear the mental ray,
And on the eyes oppressed with night
To pour celestial day.


He comes the broken heart to bind,
The bleeding soul to cure,
And with the treasures of His grace
Enrich the humble poor.


On Him the Spirit, largely poured,
Exerts His sacred fire;
Wisdom and might, and zeal and love,
His holy breast inspire.


His silver trumpets publish loud
The jubilee of the Lord
Our debts are all remitted now
Our heritage restored.


Our glad hosannas, Prince of Peace,
Thy welcome shall proclaim;
And heavenís eternal arches ring
With Thy belovŤd name.


---Alternative verses---


He comes from thickest films of vice
To clear the mental ray,
And on the eye-balls of the blind
To pour celestial day.


He comes from thickest films of vice
To clear the mental ray,
And on the eyes long closed in night
To pour celestial day.


The sacred year has now revolved,
accepted of the Lord,
When Heavenís high promise is fulfilled,
and Israel is restored.


He comes the broken heart to bind,
The bleeding soul to cure,
And with the treasures of His grace
To bless the humble poor.


He comes to save a ruined race;
A dying world to cure;
And, with the riches of his grace,
To bless the humble poor.


Our glad hosannas, Prince of Peace,
Thy welcome shall proclaim;
And heaven, through countless ages, bless
Thy loved and honoured name.


Our glad hosannahs, Prince of Peace!
thy welcome shall proclaim;
And heavenís exalted arches ring
with thy most honoured name.
