Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

474. Blow Ye the Trumpet, Blow!

1 Blow ye the trumpet, blow!
The gladly solemn sound
let all the nations know,
to earth's remotest bound;

Refrain:
The year of jubilee is come;
return, ye ransomed sinners, home;
return, ye ransomed sinners, home.

2 Jesus, our great High Priest,
has full atonement made;
ye weary spirits, rest;
ye mournful souls, be glad: [[Refrain]

3 Extol the Lamb of God;
the sacrificial Lamb;
redemption through his blood
throughout the world proclaim: [Refrain]

4 Ye slaves of sin and hell,
your liberty receive;
and safe in Jesus dwell,
and blest in Jesus live: [Refrain]

5 Ye who have sold for naught
your heritage above,
receive it back unbought,
the gift of Jesus' love: [Refrain]

6 The gospel trumpet hear,
the news of heav'nly grace;
and, saved from earth, appear
before your Savior's face: [Refrain]
