Spread the News

Representative Text

1 Sound the Gospel of grace abroad,
There's life in the risen Lord!
Spread the news of the gift of God,
There's life in the risen Lord!

Refrain:
Tell it around, let it abound,
There's life in the risen Lord!
Tell it around, let it abound,
There's life in the risen Lord!

2 All by nature are doom'd to die,
So saith the Holy Word;
Welcome, therefore, the joyful cry,
There's life in the risen Lord! [Refrain]

3 Saints, apostles, and prophets, all
Publish'd with one accord
This deliverance from the fall,
This life in the risen Lord: [Refrain]

4 Pardon, power, and perfect peace
The words of this life afford;
Never then let the tidings cease
Of life in the risen Lord: [Refrain]

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
