Lyrics

  1. 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. 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. 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.
  4. Text: Reginald Heber, 1783-1826. Included in the first LDS hymnbook, 1835.
    Music: Lowell Mason, 1792-1872
