Go and tell the joyful tidings,
Jesus died to save,
Rose again in holy triumph,
Conquering the grave.
Tell His power to loose the captive,
Set the prisoner free,
And proclaim to eager millions
Glorious Jubilee.


Tell the tidings, speed the message,
Jesus died to save,
Rose again in mighty triumph,
Conquering the grave.

Tell them of the promised Spirit,
Falling from above,
Filling every true believer,
Perfecting in love.
Tell them of the King’s returning:
Soon He’ll come again
And receive His faithful people,
And forever reign.


Shout aloud the Gospel tidings,
Speed them on the way,
Earnestly proclaim the message
Every passing day.
Be a herald true and loyal,
Waver not nor wait;
Keep not back a single warning,
Soon ’twill be too late.
