Hymn/Song Information

Over the gloomy hills of darkness Look




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


Let the Indian, let the Negro,
Let the rude barbarian see
That Divine and glorious conquest
Once obtained on Calvary;
|:Let the gospel, :|
Loud resound from pole to pole.


Kingdoms wide that sit in darkness,
Grant them, Lord, the saving 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,
On their grossest darkness dawn,
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 the sceptre, :|
Saviour, all the world around.


Every creature, living breathing,
In divinely grateful lays,
Father, Son, and Spirit praising,
Magnify the God of grace:
|:Hallelujah! :|
Fill the universe with praise.


---Alternative verses---


O’er the gloomy hills of darkness,
Look, my soul, be still, and gaze;
All the promises do travail
With a glorious day of grace:
|:Blessed jubilee,:|
Dawn at length on every place.


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


Kingdoms that are wrapped in darkness,
Grant them, Lord, the long-lost light,
And from eastern coast to western
Let the morning chase the night,
|:And redemption, :|
Rise on our admiring sight.


Let the Indian, let the Negro,
Let the rude barbarian see
That Divine and glorious conquest
Once obtained on Calvary;
|:And repenting, :|
Jesus, let them turn to thee.


Fly abroad, thou mighty Gospel,
Win and conquer, never cease;
That Immanuel's just dominion
may through all the earth increase:
|:Till all nations, :|
Find in him their life and peace.
