1 Tidings, happy tidings,
Hark! hark! the sound!
Hear the joyful echo
Thro’ the world resound;
Christ the Lord proclaims them,
Hear and heed the call:
Come, ye starving ones that perish,
Room, room for all.

Whosoever asketh
Jesus will receive;
Whosoever thirsteth,
Jesus will relieve;
See the living waters,
Flowing full and free;
O the blessed whosoever,
That means me.

2 Tidings, happy tidings,
Hark! hark! they say,
Do not slight the warning,
Come, O come today;
Christ our loving Savior,
Still repeats the call—
Come, ye weary, heavy laden,
Room, room for all. [Refrain]

3 Tidings, happy tidings,
Hark! hark! again,
Rushing o’er the mountain,
Sweeping o’er the plain;
Onward goes the message,
‘Tis the Savior’s call:
Come, for everything is ready,
Room, room for all. [Refrain]
