Blow Ye the Trumpet, Blow

The United Methodist Hymnal Number 379
Text: Charles Wesley, 1707-1788
Music: Lewis Edson
Tune: LENOX, Meter: 66.66.88

1. Blow ye the trumpet, blow!
The gladly solemn sound
let all the nations know,
to earth's remotest bound:
The year of jubilee is come!
The year of jubilee is come!
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home.

2. Jesus, our great high priest,
hath full atonement made;
ye weary spirits, rest;
ye mournful souls, be glad:

3. Extol the Lamb of God,
the all atoning Lamb;
redemption in his blood
throughout the world proclaim.

4. Ye slaves of sin and hell,
your liberty receive,
and safe in Jesus dwell,
and blest in Jesus live:

5. Ye who have sold for nought
your heritage above
shall have it back unbought,
the gift of Jesus' love:

6. The gospel trumpet hear,
the news of heavenly grace;
and saved from earth, appear
before your Savior's face:
The year of jubilee is come!
The year of jubilee is come!
Return to your eternal home.
