Hymn/Song Information

Forgiveness tis a joyful sound To rebels




Forgiveness, ‘tis a joyful sound,
To rebels justly doomed to die;
Publish the bliss to all around,
Haste, for the rebel’s doom is nigh.


For sins, which like the mountains stand,
To obstruct the sinner’s path to heaven:
For sins as numerous as the sand,
God hath a perfect pardon given.


‘Tis the rich gift of love divine,
Free as the light which God bestows;
It covers every greatest sin,
And rings the wretched to repose.


‘Tis freely given for Jesus’ sake,
To those who trust what Jesus saith;
Come, sinners come, the blessing take,
And make it yours by simple faith.


O God, thy mercy which imparts
Such blessings has thy servants bought;
And now we ask devoted hearts,
To love and serve thee as we ought.


---Alternative verses---


'Tis the rich gift of love divine:
'Tis full, out-measuring ev'ry crime;
Unclouded shall its glories shine,
And feel no change by changing time.
