1. Hark, ten thousand harps and voices,
    Sound the note of praise above!
Jesus reigns, and heav’n rejoices;
    Jesus reigns, the God of love:
See, He sits on yonder throne;
Jesus rules the world alone.

Refrain
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Amen.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Amen.

2. Jesus, hail! Whose glory brightens
    All above, and gives it worth;
Lord of life, Thy smile enlightens,
    Cheers and charms Thy saints on earth:
When we think of love like Thine,
Lord, we own it love divine.
Refrain

3. King of glory, reign forever,
    Thine an everlasting crown;
Nothing from Thy love shall sever
    Those whom Thou shalt call Thine own:
Happy objects of Thy grace,
Destined to behold Thy face.
Refrain

4. Saviour, hasten Thine appearing;
    Bring, oh, bring the glorious day,
When, the awful summons hearing,
    Heav’n and earth shall pass away:
Then with golden harps we’ll sing,
“Glory, glory to our King!”
Refrain

The text was taken from Hymns for Second Advent Believers (1852). It echoes the enthusiasm and desire that the pure in heart have always had to see their Lord appear again:

Psalm 50
2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.
3 Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence…
4 He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that He may judge His people.

Psalm 96
11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad…
12 before the Lord: for He cometh, for He cometh to judge the earth:
13 He shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with His truth.

Isaiah 26
19 Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.

Isaiah 25
8 He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of His people shall He take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it.
9 And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for Him, and He will save us: this is the Lord; we have waited for Him, we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.

Habakkuk 3
3 God came from Teman, and the Holy One from Mount Paran. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of His praise.
4 And His brightness was as the light…
6 He stood, and measured the earth: He beheld, and drove asunder the nations; and the everlasting mountains were scattered, the perpetual hill did bow: His ways are everlasting…
8 …Thou didst ride upon Thine horses and Thy chariots of salvation…
10 The mountains saw Thee, and they trembled:…the deep uttered his voice, and lifted up his hands on high.
11 The sun and moon stood still in their habitation: at the light of Thine arrows they went, and at the shining of Thy glittering spear….
13 Thou wentest forth for the salvation of Thy people, even for salvation with Thine anointed…

1 Thessalonians 4
16 The Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the Archangel, and with the trump of God.
