1 Hark, the glad sound! the Saviour comes,
The Saviour promised long!
Let every heart prepare a throne,
And every voice a song.
2 He comes the prisoners to release
In sin's hard bondage held;
The gates of brass before him burst,
The iron fetters yield.
3 He comes the broken heart to bind,
The wounded soul to cure,
And with the treasures of his grace
To bless the humble poor.
4 Our glad hosannas, Prince of peace.
Thy welcome shall proclaim,
And heaven's eternal arches ring
With thy beloved name.
