233. Hark! the Choirs of Angels Crying

by T. Kelly
Hark! the choirs of angels crying,
Glory to the Lamb once slain,
None in heaven or earth denying
Tribute to the Savior's name.
Ye for whom His life was given,
Higher themes to you belong,
Wake then here the joy of heaven,
Raise the everlasting song.
“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” (Galatians 2:20)
“Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it.” (Ephesians 5:25)
See how God hath now enthroned Him
At His own right hand on high,
There the heavenly hosts have owned Him,
Filling with His praise the sky.
“Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 1:20)
Filled with blest anticipation,
Chant as soon to be above;
Sweet the theme—a free salvation,
Fruit of everlasting love.
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.” (Ephesians 2:8)
Endless life in Him possessing,
Let us praise His glorious name,
Glory, honor, power and blessing
Be forever to the Lamb.
“He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.” (1 John 5:12)
“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” (John 3:36)
“Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing.” (Revelation 5:12)
