Hymn/Song Information

Hark what a sound and too divine




Hark, what a sound,
and too divine for hearing,
Stirs on the earth
and trembles in the air!
Is it the thunder of
the Lord’s appearing?
Is it the music of
His people’s prayer?


Surely He cometh,
and a thousand voices
Shout to the saints
and to the deaf and dumb;
Surely He cometh,
and the earth rejoices,
Glad in His coming
Who hath sworn, “I come.”


So even I, and with
a pang more thrilling,
So even I, and with
a hope more sweet,
Yearn for the sign, O Christ,
of Thy fulfilling,
Faint for the flaming
of Thine advent feet.


This hath he done,
and shall we not adore him?
This shall he do,
and can we still despair?
Come, let us quickly fling
ourselves before him,
Cast at his feet
the burden of our care.


Yea, through life, death,
through sorrow and through sinning,
He shall suffice me,
for He hath sufficèd;
Christ is the end,
for Christ was the beginning,
Christ the beginning,
for the end is Christ.
