|Hark what a sound, and too divine for hearing,|
Stirs on the earth and trembles in the air;
Is it the thunder of the Lord’s appearing?
Is it the music of His people’s prayer?
|Surely He cometh, and a thousand voices|
Shout to the saints, and to the deaf and dumb;
Surely He cometh, and the earth rejoices,
Glad in His coming who hath sworn: I come!
|This hath He done, and shall we not adore Him?|
This shall He do, and can we still despair?
Come, let us quickly fling ourselves before Him, .
Cast at His feet the burden of our care.
|Thru life and death, thru sorrow and thru sinning|
He shall suffice me, for He hath sufficed:
Christ is the end, for Christ was the beginning,
Christ the beginning, for the end is Christ.
