THE CHURCH'S JUBILEE




The light of eventide now shines
the darkness to dispel,
The glories of fair Zionís state
ten thousand voices tell;
For out of Babel God doth call
His scattered saints in one,
Together all one church compose,
the body of His Son.

O church of God, the day of jubilee
Has dawned so bright
and glorious for thee;
Rejoice, be glad!
Thy Shepherd has begun
His long-divided flock
again to gather into one.



The Bible is our rule of faith,
and Christ alone is Lord,
All we are equal in His sight
when we obey His word;
No earthly master do we know,
to man-rule will not bow,
But to each other and to God
eternal trueness vow.

O church of God, the day of jubilee
Has dawned so bright
and glorious for thee;
Rejoice, be glad!
Thy Shepherd has begun
His long-divided flock
again to gather into one.



The day of sects and creeds for us
forevermore is past,
Our brotherhood are all the saints
upon the world so vast;
We reach our hands in fellowship
to every blood-washed one,
While love entwines about each heart
in which Godís will is done.

O church of God, the day of jubilee
Has dawned so bright
and glorious for thee;
Rejoice, be glad!
Thy Shepherd has begun
His long-divided flock
again to gather into one.



Oh, blessed truth
that broke our bands!
In it we now rejoice,
While in the holy church of God
we hear our Saviorís voice;
And gladly to His blessed will
submissive we shall be,
And from the yokes of Babelís lords
from henceforth we are free.

O church of God, the day of jubilee
Has dawned so bright
and glorious for thee;
Rejoice, be glad!
Thy Shepherd has begun
His long-divided flock
again to gather into one.
