81*. Let All Who Know the Joyful Sound

Let all who know the joyful sound,
With gladness send the tidings round,
And tell that God is love:
That God so loved the world He gave
His own dear Son the world to save;
God's message from above.
Luke 2:10-11; 1 John 4:8; John 3:16
That all who in the Son believe,
Shall never perish, but receive
Life endless and divine;
No condemnation e'er shall know,
From death to life they pass below,
And then in glory shine.
Romans 8:1; John 5:24
'Tis not of works: let no man boast,
Save in His name who saves the lost—
The Lord our righteousness!
Poor sinner, now from working cease,
And claim from God a blood-bought peace,
And Jesus, Lord confess.
Ephesians 2:9; 1 Corinthians 1:30; Romans 10:9
Let all who know our God rejoice,
Praise Him in songs with cheerful voice,
And live to Him alone:
Let sinners too take up the strain,
Exalt the Lamb for sinners slain,
The coming Saviour own.
Psalm 63:3; Romans 14:8; Revelation 5:9
The Spirit and the bride say, Come!
Let him that heareth too say, Come!
Whoever thirsts may come:
Water of life is freely given
Till Christ the Lord descends from heaven;
Lord Jesus, quickly come!
Revelation 22:17; 1 Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 22:20
