Lyrics

Blessèd news from Heav’n above,
Send it forth on wings of love,
O’er the migh­ty ocean wave,
Jesus died, the lost to save.

Refrain

Whosoever will be­lieve,
Shall eter­nal life re­ceive;
Sound the Gos­pel call,
There is room for all.
Whosoever will be­lieve,
Shall eter­nal life re­ceive;
Sound the Gos­pel call:
There is room for all.

Blessèd news, O let it roll,
Quickly on to ev’ry soul,
Over land and ov­er sea,
To the world re­demp­tion free.

Refrain

Blessèd news for those that stray,
On the moun­tain far away,
Lo, the ten­der Shep­herd’s voice,
Bids them now in Him re­joice.

Refrain

Blessèd news for souls op­pressed,
Come to Je­sus, come and rest;
Turn to Him and He’ll for­give,
To the cross, O look and live.
