Christ My Song - 1380

Hark! a voice! it cries from heaven
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Hark! a voice! it cries from heaven.

"Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord."
(Revelation 14,13)

1. Hark! a voice! it cries from heaven,
  "Happy in the Lord who die!"
Happy they to whom 'tis given
  from a world of grief to fly!
    They indeed are truly blessed,
    from their labour then they rest.

2. All their toils and conflicts over,
  lo! they dwell with Christ above;
O what glories they discover
  in the Saviour whom they love;
    now they see him face to face,
    him who saved them by his grace.

3. 'Tis enough, enough for ever,
  'tis his people's bright reward;
they are blessed indeed who never
  shall be absent from the Lord;
    O that we may die like those
    who in Jesus then repose!

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 365.
