Hymn/Song Information

From heaven's height Christ spake to




From heaven's height Christ spake to call
the gentiles' great apostle, Paul,
whose doctrine, like the thunder, sounds
to the wide world's remotest bounds.


O bliss of Paul, beyond all though,
to paradise, yet living, caught!
He hears the heavenly mysteries there,
which mortal tongue cannot declare.


The word's good seed abroad he flings;
straightway a mighty harvest springs,
and fruits of holy deeds supply
God's everlasting granary.


The lamp his burning faith displays
has filled the world with glorious rays;
that darkness' realm may be o'erthrown,
and Christ may reign, and reign alone.
