Full Text

1 Good news, good news from the heavenly heights,
And it tells a Saviour born;
Let the sound go forth like a trumpet voice,
On the wings of early morn.

Refrain:
Let the sound go forth like a trumpet voice,
To the utmost bounds of earth;
And the tongues of men and angels join
In a song of sacred mirth.

2 Good news, good news, our Redeemer comes,
And His name the Prince of peace;
He is King of kings, He is Lord of lords,
And His reign shall never cease. [Refrain]

3 Good news, good news, our Redeemer comes,
And the promised day we see,
When the bars are rent from the prison doors,
And the captive soul is free. [Refrain]

4 Good news, good news, shout aloud for joy,
And the newborn King adore;
Hallelujah sing to the Mighty God,
Hallelujah evermore. [Refrain]
