Christ My Song - 1455

Hark! that shout of rapturous joy
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Hark! that shout of rapturous joy.

"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven
with a shout." (1 Thessalonians 4,10)

1. Hark! that shout of rapt'rous joy,
  bursting forth from yonder cloud;
Jesus comes, and, through the sky,
  angels tell their joy aloud.

2. Now the world's duration ends;
  now the Lord will meet his foes;
these shall perish, but his friends
  shall in heav'n obtain repose.

3. Hark ! the trumpet's awful voice
  sounds abroad through sea and land;
let his people now rejoice,
  their redemption is at hand.

4. See! the Lord appears in view;
  heav'n and earth before him fly;
rise, ye saints, he comes for you;
  rise to meet him in the sky.

5. Go, and dwell with him above,
  where no foe can e'er molest;
happy in the Saviour's love!
  Blessing, and for ever blessed.

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 59.
