Hymn/Song Information

It is the voice of love divine That




It is the voice of love divine,
That strikes the listening ear,
That sooths his mourning follower's grief.
And wipes the falling tear:


'Because I leave this world' he cries,
'Your weeping eyes overflow;
But tho' I seek my native skies,
My heart remains below.'


'My spirit shall descend, and rest
Upon each faithful head.
Till I, your Lord, return to call
My servants from the dead.'


He said and lifting up his hands,
Pronounc'd his parting prayer;
When lo, a bright descending cloud
Convey'd him thro' the air.


With solemn awe his followers view'd
The splendor of the scene,
Where the unfolding gates of light
Receiv'd the Saviour in.


Burning with holy zeal, they spread,
Thro' distant lands, his word;
And we, like them, with faith and joy
Expect our risen Lord.
