Book Of Hymns For Public And Private Devotion by Various

188. 6s. M. Anonymous. Behold, He Cometh.

1 Hark! through the waking earth,
Hark! through the echoing sky,
Herald of freedom's birth,
There comes a glorious cry.

2 The triple chains that bind
Fall from the weary limb,
And from the down-crushed mind,
As soundeth that high hymn.

3 Unto man's waiting heart
It saith, -- |Arise, be strong!
Bear thou an earnest part
Against all forms of wrong.

4 |Wouldst live in earth as lives
The glorious One above?
He for thy model gives
Himself, and he is Love.

5 |Love in each brother man
The God who loveth him;
Revere the stamp of heaven,
However marred and dim.

6 |Bid fear give place to love;
Bid doubt and passion cease;
Be every word of hate
Forever hushed in peace.|

7 Sound, sound through all the earth!
Sound through the echoing sky!
Proclaim the world's new birth;
Proclaim the Lord is nigh!
