lyrics

Hark! A thrilling voice is sounding
“Christ is nigh,” it seems to say
“Cast away the works of darkness,
O ye children of the day.”

Wakened by the solemn warning
From earth’s bondage let us rise
Christ, our sun, all sloth dispelling
Shines upon the morning skies

Hear our cries
Our hope is in you
Hear our cries we pray

Look in the sky! It’s a bird its a plane,
No! it’s the Lamb that was slain!
So we cry out loud with anticipation
For our ransom was paid
In full, yet my heart full of sorrow
Things I’ve done today that I’ll
Be ashamed of tomorrow,
May I borrow a sleeve to cry?
I feel so full of grief inside, I sigh
Relieved only believing that for me He died
See Jesus I, only hope in you to lead the blind
So they can seek and find
You the root beneath the vine
Can’t wait till you arrive so we can drink the wine

Hear our cries
Our hope is in you
Hear our cries we pray
