JUBILEE OF THE BAPTIST MISSIONARY SOC




O be joyful, every nation!
Hail the day with sacred mirth,
When the trumpet of salvation
Sounds the jubilee of earth,
|: And creation :|
Travails with the world’s new birth.


Then the north, in darkness shrouded,
Jacob’s rising star shall bless;
And the Sun of Righteousness,
|: Cheering, healing :|
Sin-sick souls in heart’s distress.


Then her swarthy sons and daughters,
Afric to the cross shall bring;
And the angel of the waters
Hear his coral islands sing,
|: “Hallelujah!” :|
Till the whole Pacific ring.


O thou everlasting Father,
Give the kingdoms to thy Son;
He hath died that he might gather
All God’s children into one;
|: For the travail :|
Of his soul, let this be done!


Yea, it must be:—thou hast spoken,
And thy covenant shall last;
Though the arch of heaven were broken,
And the earth’s foundation cast
|: Down the abysses; :|
Yet thy word, O God, stands fast.


On thy holy hill of Zion,
Hast thou not ordained his seat?
Now, as Judah’s conquering lion,
Lay all foes beneath his feet,
|: Till his armies :|
In eternal triumph meet.


We have joined their marching legions,
Where our fathers fought, we fight;
Slavery’s cane-lands, Brama’s regions,
Are exulting at the sight;
|: Freedom, freedom, :|
Comes with gospel-life and light.


All the languages of Babel,
Weapons for the warfare yield;
And with these we well are able,
By the Spirit’s might, to wield
|: In the battle, :|
Truth’s safe guard, and Faith’s strong shield.


Thus, through fifty years victorious,
Thou hast led our brethren on;
Arm them now for deeds more glorious,
Till the latest field is won:
|: And all people :|
Bow the knee and kiss the Son.
