Resound the glad Tidings

Representative Text

1 Awake the loud trumpet, the glad jubilee,
Proclaim it on triumph, the captives are free;
The day of redemption for sinners has come,
The ransomed of Zion return to their home.

Resound the glad tidings o’er land and o’er sea,
The Savior has conquered, his people are free;
Resound the glad tidings o’er land and o’er sea,
The Savior has conquered, his people are free.

2 Break forth into singing, be joyful, O earth,
Exalt the Redeemer, his goodness and worth;
And publish abroad his adorable name,
With song and with shouting his honors proclaim. [Refrain]

3 The Son hath delivered the wretched, oppressed,
And given the burdened and sorrowing rest;
His arm has salvation and victory wrought,
His blood and redemption and liberty bought. [Refrain]

4 With cymbals and songs and harp of sweet sound,
The fame and the glory of Christ spread around;
With gladness and triumph re-echo his praise,
Extol and adore him in jubilant lays. [Refrain]
