Hark! the glad sound! the Savior comes
- Philip Doddridge, 1702-1751
1 Hark, the glad sound! the Savior comes, the Savior promised long: let every heart prepare a throne, and every voice a song.
2 He comes, the prisoners to release in Satan's bondage held; the gates of brass before him burst, the iron fetters yield.
3 He comes, the broken heart to bind, the bleeding soul to cure; and with the treasures of his grace to enrich the humble poor.
4 Our glad hosannas, Prince of Peace, thy welcome shall proclaim; and heaven's eternal arches ring with thy beloved Name.
