Hymn/Song Information

O blessed blessed sounds of grace Still echoing in




O blessed, blessed sounds of grace,
Still echoing in my ear!
Glad is the hour, and loved the place-
But whence my sudden fear?


What if a sternly righteous doom
Have sealed this call my last?
Before me sickness-death-a tomb;
Behind, th' unpardoned past.


My Sabbath suns may all have set,
My Sabbath scenes be o'er;
The place, at least, where we are met,
May know my steps no more.


The prophet of the cross may ne'er
Again preach peace to me:
The voice of interceding prayer
A farewell voice may be.


But, Saviour, canst thou say, "Farewell?"
Or, Holy Spirit, thou?
Or must I leave thy house for hell?
save me, save me now!


While yet the life-proclaiming word
Doth through my conscience thrill,
Breathe life; and lo! divinely stirred,
I can repent, I will.
