Lyrics

Christ is mak­ing sin­ners free,
Full sal­va­tion giv­ing,
Whosoever will may come,
None He will re­fuse;
Therefore, that the lost may know,
And with Christ be­liev­ing,
All the way, ev­ery day,
Tell and sing the news.

Refrain


Tell it, sing it, let the breez­es wing it,
Helping sin­ners Christ the Lord to choose;
Tell it, sing it, let your joy-bells ring it,
O’er and o’er, ev­er­more,
Tell and sing the news.

All trans­gress­ions from the past
He is free­ly hid­ing,
And is giv­ing songs of joy
To the sad and lone;
Millions in His pre­sence now
Safely are abid­ing;
Tell it out, sing it out,
Make His mer­cy known.

Refrain

All may have ete­rnal life,
If they will be­lieve Him;
All may wear the robe and crown
In the world above;
He will sure­ly rich­ly bless
All who will re­ceive Him;
Shout the news, preach the news,
Praise His migh­ty love.
