Representative Text

1 O ‘tis coming! night is breaking away;
‘Tis the dawning of the golden day,
When all the world shall hear the blessed word we adore,
Echoing from shore to shore.

Sounds the great Evangel’s word of command,
“Go ye into every nation, every land,
And preach the gospel message to each tribe in every clime;—
I’m with you to the end of time.”

2 See the mighty hosts of God in array,
Stronger, stronger growing every day;
Preparing everywhere the coming way of the Lord,
spreading everywhere His word. [Refrain]

3 O ye slumb’ring ones, awake and arise!
See, the sun is mounting up the skies!
Fall into line, make ready for the great Jubilee
That is coming full and free. [Refrain]

4 O ‘tis coming! bringing peace in its train;
Sing, O sing the sweet evangel strain
That ushers in the golden age, triumphant in love;
Sing, ye angle host above! [Refrain]
