Words & Mu­sic: Phi­lip P. Bliss, in Gos­pel Hymns No. 2 (New York: Big­low & Main, 1876), num­ber 1 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Philip P. Bliss (1838–1876)


Come, sing the Gos­pel’s joy­ful sound,
Salvation full and free;
Proclaim to all the world around,
The year of ju­bi­lee!


Salvation, sal­va­tion,
The grace of God doth bring;
Salvation, sal­va­tion,
Thro’ Christ our Lord and king.

Ye mourn­ing souls, aloud re­joice;
Ye blind, your Sav­ior see!
Ye pri­son­ers, sing with thank­ful voice,
The Lord hath made you free!


With rap­ture swell the song again,
Of Je­sus’ dy­ing love;
’Tis peace on earth, good will to men,
And praise to God above.
