1. The voice of God again is heard.The silence has been broken.The curse of darkness is withdrawn.The Lord from heav'n has spoken.Rejoice, ye living and ye dead!Rejoice, for your salvationBegins anew this happy mornOf final dispensation.
2. O messengers of truth, go forth,Proclaim the gospel story,Go forth the nations to prepareTo greet the King of glory.We shout hosanna, shout again,Till all creation blendingShall join in one great, grand amenOf anthems never ending.
