Shout the glad tidings, exultingly sing;
Jerusalem triumphs, Messiah is King!
1 Sion, the marvellous story be telling,
The Son of the Highest, how lowly his birth!
The brightest archangel in glory excelling,
He stoops to redeem thee, he reigns upon earth: [Chorus]
2 Tell how He cometh; from nation to nation
The heart-cheering news let the earth echo round:
How free to the faithful he offers salvation,
How his people with joy everlasting are crown'd: [Chorus]
3 Mortals, your homage be gratefully bringing,
And sweet let the gladsome Hosanna arise:
Ye angels, the full Alleluia be singing;
One chorus resound through the earth and the skies: [Chorus]
