Representative Text

1 There’s a rod above the ocean,
And a wind across the wave,
And a pathway thro’ the sea,
And a nation is in motion
For a land without a slave!
O sound the jubilee!
O sound the jubilee!

Chorus:
Jubilee! jubilee!
Jubilee! come!
Sound the silver trumpet,
Call the children home;
For the yoke of Rum is broken,
And the people shall be free!
O sound the jubilee!
O sound the jubilee!

2 O the mighty God has spoken,
For the children whom He loves,
He has said they shall be free!
Up, O Jacob! heed the token,
When the fiery pillar moves!
O sound the jubilee!
O sound the jubilee! [Chorus]

3 We will stand aside like Moses,
When Jehovah passes by,
And His glory we will see;
For He opens and He closes
With a power great and high:
O sound the jubilee!
O sound the jubilee! [Chorus]
