1 "Proclaim," said Christ, "God's wondrous grace
To all the sons of men;
He who believes and is baptiz'd,
Salvation shall obtain."
2 Let plenteous grace descend on those,
Who, hoping in his word,
This day have publicly declar'd,
That Jesus is their Lord.
3 With cheerful feet may they go on,
And run the Christian race;
And in the troubles of the way,
Find all-sufficient grace.
4 And when the awful message comes,
To call their souls away;
May they be found prepar'd to live
In realms of endless day.
