Representative Text

1 Ring abroad the joyful message of redeeming love,
Tell to longing hearts the tidings of good cheer,
That the way of life is open to the throne above,—
That the Saviour’s smile will banish ev’ry fear.

Ring it out on ev’ry hand,
Ring it out to ev’ry land,
Ring it out that all may hear
Such a message full of hope and cheer.

2 Ring it out that sin is pardoned at the Saviour’s cross,
That the crimson fountain cleanse the v’ry stain,
There is balm for ev’ry sorrow, gain for ev’ry loss,
There’s a bow of promise shining thro’ the rain. [Refrain]

3 Ring it out that with our Father is eternal might,
That His arm will for His children’s need provide,
That the darkness will be scattered by the Dayspring bright,
And the peace of God will in our hearts abide. [Refrain]
