1 From the isles of the sea cometh tidings of thee,
From the vine mantled hills of Cathay,
They have heard of the Lord, they have trusted His word,
A nation is born in a day!
Then rejoice, and sing for the Lord is King,
His name by His saints is adored;
Rejoice in his light, no darkness, no night,
Rejoice and believe in his word.
2 From the East comes the cry that the Savior is nigh!
Oh, break forth all ye lands, in his praise!
With his power and might there is glory and light,
In His hand is the fullness of days. [Chorus]
3 Let Jerusalem sing, for the Lord he is King,
And her bondage is now at an end,
Take her harps from the trees, lift her songs on the breeze,
All her voices in harmony blend. [Chorus]
