Blow Ye the Trumpet, Blow
by Charles Wesley

Blow ye the trumpet, blow!
The gladly solemn sound
Let all the nations know,
To earth's remotest bound:

Refrain:
The year of jubilee is come!
The year of jubilee is come!
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home.

Jesus, our great high priest,
Hath full atonement made;
Ye weary spirits, rest;
Ye mournful souls, be glad:
(Refrain)

Extol the Lamb of God,
The all atoning Lamb;
Redemption in his blood
Throughout the world proclaim.
(Refrain)

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

Ye who have sold for nought
Your heritage above
Shall have it back unbought,
The gift of Jesus' love:
(Refrain)

The gospel trumpet hear,
The news of heavenly grace;
And saved from earth, appear
Before your Savior's face:
(Refrain)
