Zion The Marvellous Story Be Telling


Chorus:
Shout the glad tidings, exultingly sing;
Jerusalem triumphs, Messiah is King!

Sion, the marvellous story be telling,
The Son of the Highest, how lowly His birth!
The brightest archangel in glory excelling,
He stoops to redeem thee, He reigns upon earth: [Chorus]

Tell how He cometh; from nation to nation
The heart-cheering news let the earth echo round;
How free to the faithful He offers salvation,
How His people with joy everlasting are crown’d: [Chorus]

Mortals, your homage be gratefully bringing,
And sweet let the gladsome hosanna arise:
Ye angels, the full hallelujah be singing;
One chorus resound through the earth and the skies: [Chorus]

Hymnal: according to the use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America,
