Over those gloomy hills of darkness




O’er those gloomy hills of darkness,
Look, my soul; be still, and gaze;
All the promises do travail
With a glorious day of grace:
|:Blessèd jubilee! :|
Let thy glorious morning dawn.


Kingdoms wide that sit in darkness,
Let them have the glorious light;
And from eastern coast to western
May the morning chase the night,
|:And redemption, :|
Freely purchased, win the day.


May the glorious day approaching,
End their night of sin and shame;
And the everlasting gospel
Spread abroad Thy holy name
|:O’er the borders :|
Of the great Immanuel’s land.


Fly abroad, thou mighty Gospel,
Win and conquer, never cease;
May thy lasting wide dominions
Multiply and still increase;
|:Sway thy scepter, :|
Savior! all the world around.

5. ****alt verses***


O'er the gloomy hills of darkness,
Cheered by no celestial ray,
Sun of Righteousness, arising,
Bring the bright, the glorious day;
|:Send the gospel:|
To the earth's remotest bounds.


Kingdoms wide that sit in darkness,
Grant them, Lord, the glorious light;
And from eastern coast to western
May the morning chase the night,
|:And redemption,:|
Freely purchased win the day.


May the glorious day approaching,
Thine eternal love proclaim,
And the everlasting gospel
Spread abroad Thy holy name
|:O’er the borders :|
Of the great Immanuel’s land.


Mighty Saviour spread the Gospel,
Win and conquer, never cease;
May thy lasting wide dominions
Multiply and still increase;
|:Sway thy scepter, :|
Savior! all the world around.
