Hymn 296

Play music
1 Hark! ten thousand, thousand voices
Sing the song of Jubilee;
Earth through all her tribes rejoices,
Broke her long captivity.
Now the theme in pealing thunders,
Through the gladsome air is rung:
Now in gentler tones, the wonders
Of redeeming grace are sung.
Hail, Emmanuel, great Deliv'rer.
Hail, Emmanuel, great Deliv'rer,
Hail, Emmanuel. Hail, Emmanuel,
Hail, Emmanuel, praise to Thee.
2 Oh! the rapturous, blissful story,
Spoken to Emmanuel's praise;
And the strains so full of glory,
That immortal voices raise;
While our crowns of glory casting
At His feet, in rapture lost,
We, in anthems everlasting,
Mingle with the ransomed host.
Hail, Emmanuel, great Deliv'rer,
Hail, Emmanuel, great Deliv'rer,
Hail, Emmanuel, Hail, Emmanuel,
Hail, Emmanuel,
Thou art worthy of all praise.
3 Yea, He reigns, the Great Messiah-
In Millennial glory crowned;
'Israel's Hope', and 'Earth's Desire',
Now triumphant and renowned;
Heaven and earth, with all their regions,
At His footstool prostrate fall;
Heaven and earth, with all their legions,
Praise Emmanuel Lord of all.
Hail. Messiah ! -reign for ever.
Hail, Messiah ! -reign for ever,
Hail, Messiah ! Hail, Messiah! Hail, Messiah!
Heaven to earth reflects the sound.
