1 Hark! the voice of choral song
Floats upon the breeze along,
Chanting clear, in solemn lays, --
|Man redeemed -- to God the praise!|
2 Angels, strike the golden lyre!
Mortals, catch the heavenly fire!
Thousands ransomed from the grave,
Millions yet our pledge shall save!
3 Save from sin's destructive breath,
Save from sorrow, shame and death --
From intemperance and strife,
Save the husband, children, wife!
4 Courage! let no heart despair --
Mighty is the truth we bear!
Forward then, baptized in love,
Led by wisdom from above!
