1. Come, all whose souls are lightedWith wisdom from on high.Shall we, to men benighted,The lamp of life deny?Salvation! Oh, salvation!The joyful sound proclaim,Till earth’s remotest nationHas learned Messiah’s name.
2. From Greenland’s icy mountains,From India’s coral strand,Where Afric’s sunny fountainsRoll down their golden sand,From many an ancient river,From many a palmy plain,They call us to deliverTheir land from error’s chain.
3. Go tell, ye winds, his story,And mighty waters, roll,Till, like a sea of glory,It spreads from pole to pole;Till o’er our ransomed natureThe Lamb, for sinners slain,Redeemer, King, CreatorIn bliss returns to reign.
