From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs. Isaiah 24:16
Songs of rejoicing now fall on our ears,
Cheering our spirits and soothing our fears;
Hark! the new voices, in tuneful accord,
Sound the high praises of Jesus, our Lord.
Listen, O listen, and hear the glad song
Nations and kingdoms are wafting along;
Praise in the highest with rapture they sing,
Glory, all glory to Jesus, our king.
Lo! the sad silence is broken at last,
Bright is the dawning, the darkness is past;
Songs of redemption ring out on the air,
Jesus has conquered, His glory declare.
Heralds of Jesus have gone to proclaim
Tidings of gladness and peace through His name;
Multitudes waiting for light from above
Hail the sweet message of light and of love.
Spread the good tidings, for all have not heard—
Prisoners of darkness await the glad word;
Voices now silent shall tunefully sing
Loud hallelujahs to Jesus our king.
