1. From all the dark places
Of earth's heathen races,
Oh, see how the thick shadows fly!
The voice of salvation
Awakes ev'ry nation,
"Come over and help us," they cry.

Chorus:
The Saviour is coming, Oh, tell ye the story,
His banner exalted shall be!
The earth shall be full of his knowledge and glory,
As waters that cover the sea!

2. The sunlight is glancing
O'er armies advancing
To conquer the kingdoms of sin;
Our Lord shall possess them,
His presence shall bless them,
His beauty shall enter them in. [Chorus]

3. With shouting and singing,
And jubilant ringing
Their arms of rebellion cast down,
At last ev'ry nation,
The Lord of salvation,
Their King and Redeemer, shall crown! [Chorus]
