The Gospel Sound 528t

Tune: Robert J. Davis, 1927
Lyrics: James Maxwell, 1759
Meter: Long Meter (8,8,8,8)
Go forth, ye heralds, in My Name,
Sweetly the gospel trumpet sound;
The glorious jubilee proclaim,
Where'er the human race is found.

The joyful news to all impart,
And teach them where salvation lies;
With care bind up the broken heart,
And wipe the tears from weeping eyes.
In 1927 Robert J. Davis was from Newton, Alabama.
