14: HARK! ten thousand voices crying

by John Nelson Darby (1800-1882)

sung to Stuttgart midi score
by C. F. Witt (1660-1716)

1 HARK! ten thousand voices crying
"Lamb of God" with one accord;
Thousand thousand saints replying,
Wake at once the echoing chord.

2 "Praise the Lamb", the chorus waking,
All in heaven together throng;
Loud and far each tongue partaking
Rolls around the endless song.

3 Grateful incense this, ascending
Ever to the Father's throne;
Every knee to Jesus bending,
All the mind in heaven is one.

4 All the Father's counsels claiming
Equal honours to the Son;
All the Son's effulgence beaming
Makes the Father's glory known.

5 By the Spirit all-pervading,
Hosts unnumbered round the Lamb,
Crowned with light and joy unfading,
Hail Him as the great "I AM".

6 Joyful now the new creation
Rests in undisturbed repose,
Blest in Jesus' full salvation,
Sorrow now nor thraldom knows.

7 Hark! the heavenly notes resounding,
Higher swells the song of praise;
Through creation's vault responding
Loud Amens which joy doth raise.
