Shout the tidings of salvation,
Send the Gospel’s joyous sound,
Till the precious invitation
Spread to earth’s remotest bound.


Spread the news, the glad good news,
From the rising to the setting of the sun,
Till the nations come and before the throne,
The great Redeemer own.

Shout the tidings of salvation
To the thousands near your home,
Till your own belovèd nation
To the feet of Jesus come.


Shout the tidings of salvation—
See the nations press your shore—
Sound the Gospel invitation
To the heathen at your door.


Shout the tidings of salvation
Till the nations own their king;
Till in joyous exultation,
Every vale and mount shall sing.
