1. “For My sake and the Gospel’s, go

And tell Redemption’s story,”

His heralds answer, “Be it so,

And Thine, Lord, all the glory!”

They preach His birth, His life,

His cross, The love of His atonement,

For whom they count the world but loss,

His Easter, His enthronement.

2. Hark, hark, the trump of Jubilee

Proclaims to every nation,

From pole to pole, by land and sea,

Glad tidings of salvation:

As nearer draws the day of doom,

While still the battle rages,

The heavenly dayspring, through the gloom

Breaks on the night of ages.

3. Still on and on the anthems spread

Of Hallelujah voices,

In concert with he holy dead

The Warrior-Church rejoices;

Their snow-white robes are washed in blood,

Their golden harps are ringing;

Earth, and the Paradise of God,

One triumph-song are singing.

4. He come, whose Advent Trumpet drowns

The last of Time’s evangels-

Emmanuel crowned with many crowns,

The Lord of saints and angels:

O Life, Light, Love, the Great I AM

Triune, who changest never;

The throne of God and of the Lamb

Is Thine, and Thine for ever!

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
