Oer The Hills And Valleys Let The Tiding


O’er the hills and valleys let the tidings fly;
Unto earth a better day is drawing nigh;
Day when love, victorious, sin shall drive away;
The watchman’s cry now fills the sky, all hail the day!

Refrain:
Day when love and mercy shall abide,
Ever nearer comes on time’s swift tide;
On its swift triumphant way,
Nothing can its dawning stay;
Hear the cry that fills the sky, all hail the day.

Wrong shall be defeated, Jesus shall be King,
Of that blessed reign of Christ with joy we sing;
Vainly hosts of evil would its coming stay;
The watchman’s cry now fills the sky, all hail the day! [Refrain]

Day when heaven’s sunshine bids the night be gone;
Blessed day when Christ shall reign, O hasten on;
For its speedy dawning may the nations pray;
The watchman’s cry now fills the sky, all hail the day! [Refrain]
