Good news from Heav’n, good news for thee,
There flows a pardon, full and free,
To guilty sinners, through the blood
Of the incarnate Son of God;
He paid the debt that thou didst owe,
He suffered death for thee below,
He bore the wrath divine for thee,
He groaned and bled on Calvary.

Refrain

Good news from Heav’n, good news for thee,
There flows a pardon, full and free,
To guilty sinners, through the blood
Of the incarnate Son of God.

Good news from Heav’n, good news for thee,
The Savior cries, Come unto Me
All ye who toil, with fears oppressed;
Come, weary one, oh, come and rest.

He loves thee with o’erflowing love,
He hears thy prayer in Heav’n above,
He all thy pasture shall prepare,
And lead thee with a shepherd’s care.

Refrain

Good news from Heav’n, good news for thee,
Has echoed from eternity;
And loud shall our hosannas ring,
When with the ransomed throng we sing.
Worthy the Lamb, whose precious blood
Has made us kings and priests to God;
Our harps we’ll tune to noblest strains,
And glory give to Him who reigns.

Refrain
