The angel sure has come again
To introduce Messiah’s reign.
 
2 The gospel trump again is heard,
The truth from darkness has appear’d;
The lands which long in darkness lay,
Have now beheld a glorious day.
 
3 The day by prophets long foretold;
The day which Abram did behold;
The day that saints desired long,
When God his strange work would per form.
 
4 The day when saints again should hear
The voice of Jesus in their ear,
And angels who above do reign,
Come down to converse hold with men.
 
Hymn 22 • The great and glorious gospel light
HYMN 22. L. M.
 
1 The great and glorious gospel light,
Has usher’d forth into my sight,
Which in my soul I have receiv’d,
From death and bondage being freed.
 
2 With saints below and saints above,
I’ll join to praise the God I love; [p. 28]
