(d=80) On Jor-dan's bank the Bap-tist's cry An - nounces that the Lord is nigh;
Awake and hearken, for he brings Glad ti - dings of the King of kings. A-men.
From our fears and sins re - lease us, Let us find our rest in Thee.
2 Israel's strength and consolation, 3 Born Thy people to deliver, Hope of all the earth Thou art;
Born a child, and yet a King,
Born to reign in us forever,
Now Thy gracious Kingdom bring. 4 By Thine own eternal Spirit,
Rule in all our hearts alone;
(d=104) Hark! a thrill-ing voice is sound-ing; "Christ is nigh!" it seems to
"Cast a- way the dreams of dark-ness, O ye chil - dren of the day.” A - men.
2 Wakened by the solemn warning, 3 Lo! the Lamb, so long expected, Let the earthbound soul arise;
Comes with pardon down from heaven; Christ, her Sun, all sloth dispelling, Let us haste, with tears of sorrow, Shines upon the morning skies.
One and all to be forgiven;
Wrapping all the world in fear,

(May be sung to Regent Square, No. 133) 2 Jesus comes again in mercy,
4 Jesus comes in joy and sorrow, When our hearts are bowed with care; Shares alike our hopes and fears; Jesus comes again in answer
Jesus comes, whate'er befalls us,
Glads our hearts, and dries our tears;
Alleluia! Alleluia! Comes to save us from despair.
Cheering e'en our failing years. 3 Jesus comes to hearts rejoicing, 5 Jesus comes on clouds triumphant, Bringing news of sins forgiven;
When the heavens shall pass away; Jesus comes in sounds of gladness, Jesus comes again in glory; Leading souls redeemed to heaven; Let us then our homage pay, Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia! ever singing, Now the gate of death is riven.
Till the dawn of endless day. Amen.

2 Come, blessèd Lord, bid every shore
And answering island sing
And own Thee as their King.
4 Lord, Lord, Thy fair creation groans,
The air, the earth, the sea, In unison with all our hearts,
And calls aloud for Thee.
3 Bid the whole earth responsive now
To the bright world above, Break forth in rapturous strains of joy,
In memory of Thy love. .
5 Thine was the Cross, with all its fruits
Of grace and peace divine:
