1. Tell it to every kindred and nation,
Tell it far and near;

Hail Him the King of glory,
Once the Lamb for sinners slain;
Tell, tell the wondrous story,
Jesus comes to reign.

2. Nations again in strife and commotion,
Warnings by the way;
Signs in the heavens, unerring omens,
Herald the glorious day. [Refrain]

3. Children of God look up with rejoicing;
Shout and sing His praise;
Blessèd are they who, waiting and watching,
Look for the dawning rays. [Refrain]
