Creation Speaks with Awful Voice

Lyrics from A Collection of Sacred Hymns for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Europe, 1840
Hymn 170 L.M. 1. Creation speaks with awful voice - Hark! 'tis a universal groan Re-echoes through the vast extent Of worlds unnumbered called to mourn. 2. For sickness, sorrow, pain and death, With awful tyranny have reigned; While all eternity has shed Her tears of sorrow o'er the slain. 3. But hark, again; a voice is heard, Resounding through the sullen gloom; A mighty conqueror has appeared, And rose triumphant from the tomb. 4. No longer let creation mourn; Ye sons of sorrow dry your tears; Life - life - eternal life, is ours, Dismiss your doubts, dispel your fears. 5. The King shall soon in clouds descend, With all the heav'nly hosts above. The dead shall rise and hail their friends, And always dwell with those they love. 6. No tears, no sorrow, death or pain, Shall e'er be known to enter there; But perfect peace, immortal bloom, Shall reign triumphant ev'ry where!
