Hymn/Song Information

RAPID SPREAD OF THE GOSPEL




See the vivid lightnings flashing,
Turning darksome night to day,
Swift the motion, great the power,
Nothing can obstruct the way;
|: All creation :|
Pay their homage and obey.


Thus shall spread the glorious gospel,
To the earth’s remotest bound,
Distant empires, lands and nations,
Soon shall hear the solemn sound;
|: Darkness fleeing, :|
Light shall every where abound.


Grace and mercy then descending,
Shall the stubborn heart subdue,
Christ reveal his great salvation,
To the gentile and the Jew;
|: Numerous converts :|
Shall appear like morning dew.


Lo, he comes in state and glory,
Bands celestial line the way,
Saints go forth, and meet our Saviour,
And the deepest reverence pay;
|: Join your triumphs, :|
Hail the joyful happy day.
