2 To lift up my voice and proclaim the glad news,
First unto the Gentiles and then to the Jews;
That Jesus Messiah in clouds will descend,
Destroy the ungodly, the righteous defend.
 
3 How rich is the treasure, ye servants of God,
Entrusted to us as made known by his word;
The plan of salvation, the gospel of grace,
To publish abroad unto Adam’s lost race.
 
4 O gladly we’'ll go to the isles and proclaim;
And nations unknown then shall hear of his
fame;
Yea, kingdoms, and countries, both Gentiles and Jews
Shall see us, and hear us proclaim the glad news.
 
5 And Millions shall turn to the Lord and rejoice,
That they have made Jesus the Saviour their choice;
From north, and the south, from the east and the west,
We’ll bring home our thousands in Zion to rest.
 
6 As clouds see them fly to their glorious home— [p. 108]
