Lyrics

Blow the Gospel trumpet, brother,
Over land and sea;
Sound the news to all creation:
Christ will set you free;
Free and happy every moment,
Tho’ by Satan bound;
He is able, do not doubt Him,
Let His grace abound.

Sing, and pray, and preach for Jesus
Everywhere you go;
Wake the slumbering sinful nations
On the brink of woe;
Tell them of that cleansing fountain
Flowing deep and wide
From Mount Calvary’s sacred summit,
From His piercèd side.

In the Spirit’s holy unction
Preach the word of God,
Till its melting power brings the
Lost to Jesus’ blood;
Compass every heathen nation
Filled with sinful dearth;
Scatter light and truth from Heaven
Over all the earth.

Send the Gospel proclamation
All around the globe,
Freedom, freedom for the captive
In his sinful robe;
Search in every hidden corner
For the honest ones;
Use the time, and work for Jesus
Till the judgment comes.
