Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

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]
