1  Hark! a thrilling voice is sounding.
"Christ is nigh," it seems to say;
"Cast away the works of darkness,
O ye children of the day."

2  Startled at the solemn warning,
Let the earth-bound soul arise;
Christ, our Sun, all sloth dispelling,
Shines upon the morning skies.

3  Lo! the Lamb, so long expected,
Comes with pardon down from heaven;
Let us haste, with tears of sorrow,
One and all, to be forgiven;

4  So when next He comes with glory,
And the world is wrapped in fear,
May He then as our Defender
On the clouds of heaven appear.

5  Honour, glory, might and blessing
To the Father and the Son,
With the Everlasting Spirit,
One in Three and Three in One.
