Samuel W. Beazley (1873–1944)


A glad mes­sage rings thro’ the world to­day,
It ech­oes thro’ the coun­tries afar,
That the ris­ing Sun, with ce­les­ti­al ray,
Scatters heal­ing where’er men are.


The good work must go on and on,
Till the world for the Lord is won,
Greater tri­umphs must be gained,
Greater heights in love at­tained,
Till the glo­ri­ous day of God shall dawn.

There are ma­ny souls that were dark as night,
All sha­dowed by the black­ness of sin,
That are glow­ing now with im­mor­tal light,
Since the glo­ry of God shone in.


There are hun­gry hearts that were starved for bread,
But Je­sus has sup­plied ev­ery need;
For on Him, the Bread of Life, they have fed
Till their spi­rits are glad in­deed.


And the deaf shall hear, and the blind eyes see;
The Word of God shall quick­en and glow;
Christ the King of earth and Hea­ven still shall be
Till His glo­ry each heart shall know.
