Blow Ye the Trumpet (Lenox) 40

Tune: Lewis Edson, 1782
Lyrics: Charles Wesley, 1750
Meter: 6s (6,6,6,6)
Blow ye the trumpet, blow,
The gladly solemn sound;
Let all the nations know,
To earthís remotest bound:

Chorus:

The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home.

Exalt the Lamb of God,
The sin atoning Lamb;
Redemption by his blood
Through all the lands proclaim:

(Chorus)

Ye slaves of sin and hell,
Your liberty receive,
And safe in Jesus dwell,
And blest in Jesus live:

(Chorus)

The gospel trumpet hear,
The news of pardíning grace;
Ye happy souls, draw near;
Behold your Saviorís face:

(Chorus)

Jesus, our great High Priest,
Has satisfaction made;
Ye weary spirits, rest;
Ye mourning souls, be glad:

(Chorus)
