Representative Text

1 Gone is the night of repining,
Vanished forever its gloom;
Hope’s blessed sunlight is shining
Thro’ the dark shades of the tomb.

Refrain:
Send out the wonderful tidings,
Over the mountains and plains,
Jesus the Lord is triumphant,
Jesus the Crucified reigns.

2 Death he has robbed of its terrors,
Banished the gloom of the grave;
Vanquished the kingdom of errors,
Risen all nations to save. [Refrain]

3 Mountains his praises are voicing,
Valleys triumphantly ring;
Millions of souls, with rejoicing,
Crown him their Savior and King. [Refrain]
