Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Send Out the Tidings

Send out the tidings, let the anthem ring

Author: Ida L. Reed
Tune: [Send out the tidings, let the anthem ring]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Send out the tidings, let the anthem ring,
Tell to all nations that the Lord is King;
Empty the gloomy prison, past is night,
Now he is risen into light.

Then let the tidings ring from to shore to shore,
Jesus is ris’n for aye.
O sing the song of joy,
Death can no longer destroy,
Its pow’r has passed away.
Send out the tidings, let the anthem ring,
Tell to all nations that the Lord is King;
Jesus is risen, let the tidings swell,
He conquer’d the grave and vanquish’d hell.

2 Send out the tidings from the silent grave,
Jesus is risen sinful men to save,
For sin he suffered, died and rose again,
Strong and triumphant sing the strain. [Refrain]

3 Send out the tidings all the nations o’er,
Let all the people crown jim evermore;
Come now and hail the Victor who was slain,
Lo! He is risen, crown’d to reign. [Refrain]
