Hark The Glad Sound! (Crediton – 4/5 Verses) – Organ

Hark The Glad Sound! Lyrics

Hark, the glad sound! The Saviour comes,
the Saviour promised long!
Let ev’ry heart prepare a throne,
and ev’ry voice a song.

He comes the pris’ners to release,
in Satan’s bondage held;
the gates of brass before Him burst,
the iron fetters yield.

He comes to free the captive mind, *
where evil thoughts control,
and for the darkness of the blind
gives light that makes them whole.

He comes the broken heart to bind,
the bleeding soul to cure,
and with the treasures of His grace
t’enrich the humbled poor.

Our glad Hosannas, Prince of Peace,
Thy welcome shall proclaim;
and heav’n’s eternal arches ring
with Thy beloved Name.

* Many sources omit this verse. Request 5 verse recording to include it.

Come Holy Ghost Our Hearts Inspire (Crediton – 4 verses) – Organ

Come Holy Ghost Our Hearts Inspire Lyrics

1. Come, Holy Ghost, our hearts inspire,
Let us Thine influence prove:
Source of the old prophetic fire,
Fountain of life and love.

2. Come, Holy Ghost, for moved by Thee,
The prophets wrote and spoke;
Unlock the truth, Thyself the key,
Unseal the sacred book.

3. Expand Thy wings, celestial Dove,
Brood o’er our nature’s night;
On our disordered spirits move,
And let there now be light.

4. God, through Himself, we then shall know
If Thou within us shine;
And sound, with all Thy saints below,
The depths of love divine.
