Tell it to every kin­dred and na­tion,
Tell it far and near;
Earth’s dark­est night will fade with the dawn­ing,
Jesus will soon ap­pear.


Hail Him the King of glo­ry,
Once the Lamb for sin­ners slain;
Tell, tell the won­drous sto­ry,
Jesus comes to reign.

Nations again in strife and com­mo­tion,
Warnings by the way;
Signs in the hea­vens, un­er­ring omens,
Herald the glo­ri­ous day.


Children of God look up with re­joic­ing;
Shout and sing His praise;
Blessèd are they who, wait­ing and watch­ing,
Look for the dawn­ing rays.
