Lyrics

Gone is the night of repining,
Vanished for­ev­er its gloom;
Hope’s blessèd sunlight is shining,
Thro’ the dark shades of the tomb.

Refrain

Send out the wonderful tidings,
Over the mountains and plains,
Jesus the Lord is triumphant,
Jesus the Cru­ci­fied reigns.

Death He has robbed of its terrors,
Banished the gloom of the grave;
Vanquished the kingdom of errors,
Risen all nations to save.

Refrain

Mountains His praises are voicing,
Valleys triumphantly ring;
Millions of souls, with rejoicing,
Crown Him their Sav­ior and King.
