1.
The glorious light of Zion
Is spreading all around,
And sinners now are hearkening
Unto the gospel sound:

2.
The standard of King Jesus
Triumphant doth arise,
And mourners crowd around it,
With bitter groans and cries.

3.
The suffering, bleeding Savior,
Who died on Calvary,
Is now proclaimed to sinners
To set the guilty free;

4.
And while the glorious message
Was circulating round,
Some souls, exposed to ruin,
Redeeming love have found.

5.
And of that favored number,
I hope that I am one;
And Christ, I trust, will finish
The work he has begun;

6.
He'll perfect it in righteousness,
And I shall ever be
A monument of mercy,
To all eternity.

7.
I am but a young convert,
Who lately did enlist
A soldier under Jesus,
My Prophet, King, and Priest;

8.
I have received my bounty,
Likewise my martial dress,
A ring of love and favor,
A robe of righteousness.

9.
Now down into the water
Will we young converts go;
There went our Lord and Master
When he was here below;

10.
We lay our sinful bodies
Beneath the yielding wave,
An emblem of the Savior,
When he lay in the grave.

11.
Poor sinners, think what Jesus
Has done for you and me:
Behold his mangled body
Hung tortured on the tree!

12.
His hands, his feet, his bleeding side
To you he doth display;—
Oh! tell me, brother sinner,
How can you stay away?

13.
Come, all you elder brethren
Ye soldiers of the cross;
Who, for the sake of Jesus,
Have counted all things loss.

14.
Come pray for us, young converts
That we may travel on,
And meet you all in glory
Where our Redeemer's gone.

To see the saints in glory,
And the angels stand inviting
The angels stand inviting,
To welcome pilgrims home.
