Speed the Tidings

Representative Text

1 Speed the tidings o'er the ocean,
Where the stormy billows roll;
Bid the trumpet of the Gospel
Sound aloud from pole to pole.

Speed the tidings, joyful tidings,
To the isles beyond the sea;
Tell the story of redemption
Thro' a Saviour, full and free.

2 Speed the tidings, do not linger,
Lest the moments wing their flight;
Call the nations from their idols,
Out of darkness into light. [Chorus]

3 Oh, the promised day is coming,
When the children from afar
Shall with us proclaim the glory
Of a Bright and Morning Star. [Chorus]
