Hark! ten thousand voices sounding

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

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

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

4. All the powers of Heaven adore Him,
All obey His sovereign word;
Day and night they cry before Him,
Holy, Holy, Holy Lord!

Written by Thomas Kelly (1769-1855)
