Fanny Crosby (1820–1915)

Across the blue waters
The message of grace
O’er kingdom and empire
Is flying apace;
The day-beam is breaking,
Majestic and bright,
And millions are turning
From darkness to light.

Refrain

Shout aloud, all ye lands,
And be glad while ye sing;
Shout aloud, all ye lands,
For the Savior is king!
And the sound that went forth
On the night of His birth
Shall be heard to the uttermost
Bounds of the earth.

All creatures adoring
Shall bow at His word,
All tongues shall confess Him
Their Savior and Lord;
His truth and its glory
Extended shall be,
And cover the earth
As the waters the sea.

Refrain

How gently and kindly
There comes from above
His scepter of mercy,
His standard of love!
He ruleth in wisdom,
The monarch of peace;
His reign shall be glorious
And never shall cease.

Refrain

The day is approaching,
The time draweth nigh,
When nation to nation
Hosanna shall cry;
The idols they worship
In dust shall be laid,
And Jesus be honored,
Exalted, obeyed.
