474. Blow Ye the Trumpet, Blow!

1 Blow ye the trumpet, blow!
The gladly solemn sound
Let all the nations know,
To earth's remotest bound;

The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home;
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home.

2 Jesus, our great High Priest,
Hath full atonement made;
Ye weary spirits, rest; (Refrain)

3 Extol the Lamb of God;
The sacrificial Lamb;
Redemption through his blood
Throughout the world proclaim: (Refrain)

4 Ye slaves of sin and hell,
Your liberty receive;
And safe in Jesus dwell,
And blest in Jesus live: (Refrain)

5 Ye who have sold for nought
Your heritage above,
Receive it back unbought,
The gift of Jesus' love: (Refrain)

6 The gospel trumpet hear,
The news of heav'nly grace;
And, saved from earth, appear
Before your Saviour's face: (Refrain)
