452 ~ What Heavenly Music


What heavenly music steals over the sea! Entrancing the senses like sweet melody! 'Tis the voice of the angels borne soft on the air; For me they are singing; their welcome I hear.


On the banks of old Jordan, here gazing I stand, And earnestly longing, I stretch forth my hand; Send a convoy of angels, dear Jesus, I pray! Let me join that sweet music; come, take me away.


Though dark are the waters and rough is the wave, If Jesus permit, the wild surges I'll brave; For that heavenly music hath ravished me so, I must join in that chorus! I'll go! let me go!
