7. Sing Out! Sound the Trumpets! Proclaim Jubilee!

Sing out! Sound the trumpets! Proclaim jubilee!
Through words from Isaiah, we came to be free;
For blest by the Spirit, Christ read from that scroll,
Proclaiming his mission: To make our lives whole.

Refrain:
Hear the word! Sing it out! It’s good news to the poor!
Christ has come! Let us shout! We are captive no more!
Lost sight is restored, and God’s world is set free:
Christ came to our world to proclaim jubilee.

But still, women struggle for lives free and fair,
And children are hungry, and loved ones despair.
Still, those long-oppressed or in prisons of fear
Are longing to call this their jubilee year.

(Refrain)

O God, through your Christ you knelt down to the earth,
And by your own Spirit, you give us new birth.
May we as your church have a passion to share
Your jubilee love with the world everywhere.

(Refrain)
