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!”
