103. Hark! the song of jubilee

Eight 7's


Walter B. Gilbert (1829-1910)

James Montgomery, 1818

Hark! the song of jubilee,

Loud as mighty thunders roar,

Or the fullness of the sea,

When it breaks upon the shore:

"Hallelujah! for the Lord

God Omnipotent shall reign;

Hallelujah!" let the word

Echo round the earth and main.

Hallelujah! hark! the sound,

From the depths unto the skies.

Wakes above, beneath, around

All creation's harmonies;

See Jehovah's banner furled,

Sheathed his sword; he speaks; 'tis done;

And the kingdoms of this world

Are the kingdoms of his Son.

He shall reign from pole to pole

With illimitable sway;

He shall reign when, like a scroll,

Yonder heavens have passed away.

Then the end; beneath his rod

Man's last enemy shall fall:

Hallelujah! Christ in God,

God in Christ is All in All.
