HARK ! ten thousand, thousand voices

Sing the song of Jubilee;

Earth, through all her tribes, rejoices,

Broke her long captivity!

Hail Emmanuel !-Great Deliver!

Hail, Emmanuel !-praise to thee!

Now the theme in pealing thunders,

Through the universe is rung,

Now in gentler tones, the wonders

Of redeeming grace are sung.

Wider now and louder rising,

Swells and soars th' enraptured strain;

Earth's unnumbered tongues comprising,-

Hark !  the Conqueror's praise again,

Hail ! Emmanuel !-Great Deliverer!

None would from the song refrain.

While they sweep the golden lyre,

More enchanting notes arise;

Till each anthem, wafted higher,

Joins the chorus of the skies.

Oh ! the rapturous, blissful story,

Spoken to Emmanuel's praise;

And the strains so full of glory,

That immortal voices raise!

Hail, Emmanuel !-Great Deliverer!

Live forever in our lays!

While our crowns of glory casting

At his feet in rapture lost,

We, in anthems everlasting,

Mingle with th' angelic host!
