1.  Hark! ten thousand harps and voices

Sound the note of praise above:

Jesus reigns, and heaven rejoices;

Jesus reigns, the God of love,

See, He sits on yonder throne;

Jesus rules the world alone.

2.  Jesus, hail! Whose glory brightens

All above, and makes it fair;

Lord of live, Thy smile enlightens,

Cheers, and charms Thy people here.

When we think of love like Thine,

Lord, we own it love divine.

3.  King of glory, reign for ever;

Thine an everlasting crown;

Nothing from Thy love shall sever

Those whom Thou has made Thine own;

Happy objects of Thy grace,

Destined to behold Thy face.

4.  Saviour, hasten Thine appearing;

Bring, O bring the glorious day,

When, the awful summons hearing,

Heaven and earth shall pass away;

Then with golden harps, we’ll sing:

“Glory, glory, to our King.”
