1 Glad tidings, my brother, glad tidings I bring
Of mansions prepared over there;
By One who knows well
All thy heart’s deep desire,
And lists to thy heart’s faintest prayer.

Refrain:
Glad tidings, my brother, for you,
Your Father is calling today;
A place He’s prepared,
And a glad welcome home,
O come and no longer delay!
Your Father is calling you home,
Is tenderly calling you home;
Then turn not away,
But come while you may,
O come to your Father and home!

2 Glad tidings, my brother, glad tidings I bring,
A message so tender and true;
Your Father is calling
And bids you return,
His heart is now yearning for you. [Refrain]

3 Glad tidings, my brother, glad tidings I bring,
God’s promises never can fail;
They’re sealed by the blood
Of His crucified Son,
The blood that will ever avail. [Refrain]
