Representative Text

1. The Gospel trumpet’s sounding,
The year of jubilee,
And grace is all abounding,
To set the bondmen free.

Return, return, ye captives,
Return unto your home,
The Gospel trumpet’s sounding,
The jubilee is come!
The Gospel trumpet’s sounding,
The jubilee is come!

2. Forsake your wretched service,
Your master’s claims are o’er;
Avail yourselves of freedom,
Be Satan’s slaves no more. [Refrain]

3. A better Master’s calling,
In accents true and kind;
He asks a loving service,
And claims a willing mind. [Refrain]

4. He offers you salvation,
And points to joys above;
And, longing, waits to make you
The objects of His love. [Refrain]

5. In living faith accept Him,
Give up all ease beside;
While grace is loudly calling,
Look to the Crucified. [Refrain]
