The Gospel Jubilee

Loud let the tuneful trumpet sound

Author: Philip Doddridge
Published in 50 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Loud let the trumpet sound,
And spread the joyful tidings round;
Let ev'ry soul with transport hear,
And hail the Lord's accepted year.

2 Ye debtors, whom he gives to know,
That you ten thousand talents owe,
When humble at this feet you fall,
Your gracious God forgives them all.

3 Slaves, that have borne the heavy chain
Of sin and hell's tyrannic reign,
To liberty assert your claim,
And urge the great Redeemer's name.

4 The rich inheritance of heaven,
Your joy, your hope is freely given;
Fair Salem you arrival waits,
With golden streets and pearly gates.

5 Her bless'd inhabitants no more
Bondage and poverty deplore;
No debt, but love immensely great,
Their joys still rises with the debt.

6 O happy souls that know the sound,
Celestial light their steps surround,
And shew the jubilee begun,
Which thro' eternal years shall run.

Doddridge suffered from tuberculosis, and when Lady Huntington, one of his patrons, offered to finance a trip to Lisbon for his health, he is reputed to have said, "I can as well go to heaven from Lisbon as from Nort… Go to person page >
