Representative Text

1. Oh! I love the Gospel song,
How it sweetly rolls along,
Let the earth the strains prolong,
Sing aloud with gladness:
Blessèd news to sinners bringing,
While the angel choirs are singing,
And the bells of Heav’n are ringing,
Sing aloud with gladness.

2. Down the centuries it came,
Glory, glory to His name,
Free salvation to proclaim,
Sing aloud with gladness:
And this melody so hoary,
Is humanity’s rich glory,
And eternity’s sweet story,
Sing aloud with gladness.

3. Haste, all lands, for Christ make room,
Earth shall yield her sin and gloom,
All her desert places bloom,
Sing aloud with gladness:
And this wonderful salvation
Shall be sung by ev’ry nation,
While He rules the vast creation,
Sing aloud with gladness.

Cooper came in to tidy up the tent area for the next service, saw the paper, picked it up and read it, and was so inspired by the words, that he finished writing the text and went to the organ… Go to person page >
