Come, All Whose Souls Are Lighted

Hymns (1985, 2002), no. 268

1. Come, all whose souls are lighted With wisdom from on high. Shall we, to men benighted, The lamp of life deny? Salvation! Oh, salvation! The joyful sound proclaim, Till earth’s remotest nation Has learned Messiah’s name.

2. From Greenland’s icy mountains, From India’s coral strand, Where Afric’s sunny fountains Roll down their golden sand, From many an ancient river, From many a palmy plain, They call us to deliver Their land from error’s chain.

3. Go tell, ye winds, his story, And mighty waters, roll, Till, like a sea of glory, It spreads from pole to pole; Till o’er our ransomed nature The Lamb, for sinners slain, Redeemer, King, Creator In bliss returns to reign.
