Shout for Gladness

Representative Text

1 Shout for gladness, sons of Zion,
Lo! the morning light appears,
Rising o’er time’s dreary mountain,
Breaking thro’ the mist of years.
Jesus comes with thronging angels
From the shining courts above,
And the banner streaming o’er us,
Is the banner of His love.

2 Shout for gladness, Christ is coming
From the regions of the blest;
Countless millions rise to meet Him,
From the north, south, each, and west.
Lo! the night of sin is over,
Death no more can terror bring;
Shout aloud and sing for gladness,
Christ the Lord is King of kings.

3 Glorious day, so long expected,
Flood your tide of bliss along;
Brooks and vales and seas and mountains,
Join the everlasting song.
Zion from the heav’ns descending,
O’er the earth her radiance flings;
Saints and angels, join the chorus,
Shout for Christ is King of kings.
