A HYMN FOR TODAY – Hark! Ten Thousand Voices Sounding

A HYMN FOR TODAY

Hark! Ten thousand voices sounding,
Far and wide throughout the sky;
‘Tis the voice of joy abounding:
Jesus lives no more to die.

Jesus lives, His conflict over,
Lives to claim His great reward;
Angels ’round the Victor hover,
Crowding to behold their Lord.

Yonder throne for Him erected
Now becomes the Victor’s seat;
Lo, the Man on earth rejected,
Angels worship at His feet!

All the pow’rs of heav’n adore Him;
All obey His sovereign word;
Day and night they cry before Him,
“Holy, Holy, Holy Lord!”

8.7.8.7 – Thomas Kelly, 1806

Tune: SUSSEX (English Folk Melody)
arr. Ralph Vaughan Williams, 1906
