Blow ye the trumpet blow,
The gladly solemn sound,
Let all the nations know,
To earthís remotest bound,
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransomíd sinners, home!

Jesus, our great High-priest,
Hath full atonement made:
Ye weary spirits rest,
Ye mournful souls be glad,
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransomíd sinners, home!

Extol the Lamb of God,
The all-atoning Lamb;
Redemption in his blood
Throughout the world proclaim;
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransomíd sinners, home!

Ye slaves of sin, and hell
Your liberty receive,
And safe in Jesus dwell,
And blest in Jesus live:
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransomíd sinners, home!

Ye who have sold for nought
Your heritage above,
Shall have it back unbought,
The gift of Jesuís love:
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransomíd sinners, home!

The gospel-trumpet hear,
The news of heavínly grace,
And savíd from earth, appear
Before your Saviourís face:
The year of jubilee is come;
Return to your eternal home.
