Tell it to every kindred and nation,
Tell it far and near;
Earth’s darkest night will fade with the dawning,
Jesus will soon appear.
Hail Him the King of glory,
Once the Lamb for sinners slain;
Tell, tell the wondrous story,
Jesus comes to reign.
Nations again in strife and commotion,
Warnings by the way;
Signs in the heavens, unerring omens,
Herald the glorious day.
Children of God look up with rejoicing;
Shout and sing His praise;
Blessèd are they who, waiting and watching,
Look for the dawning rays.
Who is this King of glory?
The Lord strong and mighty,
the Lord mighty in battle.
Who is the King of glory? Jehovah strong and mighty, Jehovah mighty in battle.
