TIDINGS OF SALVATION




To us the joyful news is brought,
Both unexpected and unsought,
Of mercy rich and free;
Jesus awhile forsakes his throne,
And for our lives resigns his own,
Upon the bloody tree.


For us he lived, for us he died,
Justice by him was satisfied,
The law no longer frowns;
Pardon and peace through him are given,
A door is opened into heaven,
To sceptres and to crowns.


Then let the gospel trumpet blow,
Till distant lands the Saviour know
And own his power divine;
Nations unborn learn to adore,
His sovereign grace and conquering power,
And in one concert join.
