Lyrics: John Langhorne

Hark, hark, hark!
Wak'd from according lyres the sweet strains flow
In symphony divine; from air to air
The trembling numbers fly; swift bursts away
The flow of joy.
Now swells the flight of praise,
Springs the shrill trump aloft;
The toiling chords
Melodious labour thro' the flying maze;
And the deep bass his strong sounds rolls away,
Majestically sweet.
