    Verse 1
    `For my sake and the Gospel's, go
    And tell Redemption's story,`
    His heralds answer, `Be it so,
    And Thine, Lord, all the glory!`
    They preach His Birth, His Life, His Cross,
    The love of His Atonement
    For Whom they count the world but loss,
    His Easter, His Enthronement

    Verse 2
    Hark, hark, the trump of Jubilee
    Proclaims to every nation,
    From pole to pole, by land and sea,
    Glad tidings of salvation:
    As nearer draws the day of doom,
    While still the battle rages,
    The Heavenly Dayspring through the gloom
    Breaks on the night of ages

    Verse 3
    Still on and on the anthems spread
    Of Hallelujah voices,
    In concert with the holy Dead
    The warrior Church rejoices;
    Their snow-white robes are washed in Blood,
    Their golden harps are ringing;
    Earth and the Paradise of God
    One Triumph-song are singing

    Verse 4
    He comes, Whose Advent Trumpet downs
    The last of Time's evangels,
    Emmanuel crowned with many crowns,
    The Lord of Saints and Angels:
    O Life, Light, Love, the great I AM,
    Triune, Who changest never,
    The Throne of God and of the Lamb
    Is Thine, and Thine for ever!
