Representative Text

1. Come, sing the Gospel’s joyful sound,
Salvation full and free;
Proclaim to all the world around,
The year of jubilee!

Refrain
Salvation, salvation,
The grace of God doth bring;
Salvation, salvation,
Thro’ Christ our Lord and king.

2. Ye mourning souls, aloud rejoice;
Ye blind, your Savior see!
Ye prisoners, sing with thankful voice,
The Lord hath made you free! [Refrain]

3. With rapture swell the song again,
Of Jesus’ dying love;
’Tis peace on earth, good will to men,
And praise to God above. [Refrain]
