Wake The Song Of Jubilee Let It Echo


Wake the song of jubilee,
Let it echo o’er the sea!
Now is come the promised hour,
Jesus reigns with sov’reign pow’r.
Come, you nations, join and sing,
To the throne your praises bring;
Let it sound from shore to shore:
“Jesus reigns forevermore.”

Now the desert lands rejoice,
And the islands join their voice;
Yes, the whole creation sings,
“Jesus is the King of kings.”
See the ransomed millions stand,
Palms of conquest in their hands;
This before the throne their strain:
“Hell is vanquished, death is slain.”

Blessing, honor, glory, might
Are the Paschal Victim’s right;
Thrones and pow’rs in homage fall,
To the Lamb and Lord of all,
Time has nearly reached its sum;
Spirit and the bride say, “Come!”
Jesus, whom all worlds adore,
Come, and reign forevermore.
