1 Heralds of the King of kings
Preach the peace the gospel brings
Loud extol th' incarnate God,
Preach the virtue of his blood.
2 Celebrate with every breath
Jesu's meritorious death:
Speak of Jesu's saving name,
Which for ever is the same.
3 And may we in chorus join,
Blessing, praising love divine;
Never be ashamed to tell
Christ hath saved our souls from hell.
